Minneapolis’ First Shared Street: 29th Street West* (11:00am-5:00pm)

Wednesday, September 13

This walking tour will visit Minneapolis’ 29th Street West: the city’s first shared-use street (woonerf) in the epicenter of the lively LynLake neighborhood.  The street was designed so that people walking, people biking, and people in motor vehicles all can use the same space.  There are no curbs, encouraging all users to access and use the entire public street width. Innovative traffic calming and design elements are present to slow drivers, along with public artwork, designed by local artists, to support a leisurely pace through the corridor.

Facilitators:

  • Matthew Dyrdahl, Bicycle and Pedestrian Coordinator for the City of Minneapolis
  • Tracy Lindgren, Professional Engineer, Department of Public Works, City of Minneapolis
  • Donald Pflaum, PE, PTOE, Transportation Planner, City of Minneapolis
