NEIGHBORHOOD NOTES | NE Minneapolis President’s Bike Boulevard meeting on December 15

Print

What’s happening in Northeast – would you believe proposed road construction! The current challenge comes from a proposed median at Polk Street and Lowry Avenue. The proposal and the anticipated President’s Bike Boulevard will be discussed at a special meeting on Thursday, December 15, 6-7 p.m. at Audubon Park Recreation Center, 1320 39th Avenue NE.

The rationale in support of the change includes slowed traffic on Lowry as well as a safe stopping space for bicycles and pedestrians crossing Lowry at Polk. Negative impacts would include reduced parking on Lowry and no left turn from Lowry onto Polk/Polk to Lowry. Motorists would also not be able to travel North-South on Polk at Lowry.

A decision by the City Council on the road changes and the impact on the President’s Bike Boulevard will be made in January.
