St. Paul Approves Another Bikeway

Woah, St. Paul is really on a roll in 2012.  Just a couple of weeks ago the Jefferson Ave Bikeway finally saw some progress in working its way through the legislative process.

Now, in addition to that, on Wednesday the St. Paul City Council approved the Griggs Street Bicycle Boulevard.  With the financing in place, coming mostly from the Federal Non-Motorized Transportation Pilot Program, construction could start as soon as this spring.

The Boulevard will run for about two miles between Summit and Minnehaha avenues in St. Paul and will include five traffic circles (down from the originally proposed six).  The only change from the original motion was to remove the traffic circle planned on Dayton ave, to help to alleviate some community concerns regarding the project.  The Boulevard will also feature, improved street lighting, crossing signals, and a pathway through Dunning Park.

Way to go St. Paul!
