Open house May 11 to review new bike lanes on 46th Street

As part of plans to pave 46th Street between Lyndale and Cedar, Hennepin County is considering new striping designed to slow traffic and improve bike travel.

The current proposal would add bike lanes between Nicollet and Lyndale. Parking would generally be prohibited on the south side of the street, with the possible exception of the business node at Grand Avenue.

The level of congestion is expected to remain similar to what is experienced today; 46th Street carries 8,000-10,000 vehicles per day between Lyndale and Nicollet.

The open house is Wednesday, May 11, from 6-6:50 p.m. at Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 4055 Nicollet Ave.
