The City of Minneapolis is making additional updates to the public right-of-way in response to COVID-19, including adding more space for active recreation on streets and reducing the need for pedestrian push buttons at intersections. Starting April 29, the City will implement 11 miles of Stay Healthy Streets routes to support more space for walking, biking and rolling while physical distancing. Three separate loop routes will mostly follow local residential streets. These local streets will generally be closed to thru traffic and calmed to allow for people to safely walk, bike, or roll in the street. Car access for residents will be retained. Additional details on Stay Healthy Streets are available on the City’s website.
