The cities of Columbia Heights and Minneapolis are working on a 2019 joint resurfacing project of 37th Ave from 5th St to Central Ave. The project consists of milling and overlaying 37th Ave from 5th St to Central Ave, as well as a new sidewalk from 5th St to Quincy Street.
The feasibility of restricting parking on one or both sides of the street, adding bike lanes, and adding a concrete sidewalk or a paved trail on the north side of 37th Ave is also being reviewed by both cities.
An informational meeting was held on Dec 4. A copy of the presentation can be found here. Additional information, such as street layouts and pedestrian connections can be found here. An aerial with the trail location (shown in red) can be found here.
If you would like to provide comments or input on the proposed bike lanes or bike trail, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 763-706-3700.
