Penn Ave Design Update
- Published on Thursday, 29 March 2012 08:05
March 28, 2012: Considering input gathered at public meetings, Public Works has created a Layout 3 (see this link to view the Layout 3 graphic). Layout 3 is similar to Layout 1 with a few significant revisions:
Parking is proposed on the west side of Penn, south of 58th Street except where that width is needed for the left turn lane and left turn lane tapers.
Parking lane width is increased to 10 feet at a few select locations where traffic volumes are over 10,000 ADT or where parking demand is very high and space for trees and grass is not sacrificed.
Public Works is recommending Layout 3 for Council Approval.
Note: Con The Minneapolis Park Board and Public Works are coordinating to replace ash trees as part of the project.
Note: MnDot is planning to re-deck the bridge over MN-62 in 2013
