Title
Preliminary Order setting the date of City Council public hearing for February 7, 2018 to consider approval for improvements to the pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure on Margaret Street between Forest and McKnight and to construct a shared use, off street trail on McKnight between Hudson Road and Minnehaha Avenue (Project No. 19240).

The project will include five intersections with traffic circles and bump outs at major crossing roads. Proposed traffic circles locations are at Atlantic, Hazelwood, Flandrau, Hazel and Winthrop. Proposed bump outs are located along Margaret Street at Forest, Earl, Johnson, Ruth, and McKnight. Additional bump outs are also proposed along McKnight Road at Third Street. Gaps in the existing sidewalk system will be filled. All non-compliant pedestrian ramps will be reconstructed to meet ADA standards.

The project also includes geometry changes at the intersection of Margaret Street and Johnson Parkway. The off street, shared use trail along the west side of McKnight Road would connect users of the bicycle boulevard to travel north/south to reach one of the existing traffic signals along McKnight to safely cross the four-lane divided roadway.

There are No Right of Way acquisitions required for this project. A Limited Use Permit will be required for work along McKnight Road from Hudson Road to Old Hudson Road, where MnDOT’s Right-of-Way exists. NO ASSESSMENTS.
