Additional Information on the 26th Avenue Bikeway

This spring, Hennepin County is planning to add on-street bike lanes to 26th Avenue (County Road 48) from the Midtown Greenway to Franklin Avenue. The changes will be accomplished by adjusting the striping for the parking and through lanes to provide two new 5-foot wide bike lanes – no changes will be made to the existing on-street parking. Representatives from the county and the city will present the proposed striping layout to the Seward Neighborhood Group’s Community Development Committee at their meeting on May 10th (Matthews Park Community Center, 7 pm).

Here is the PDF file of the proposed layout for your information.
