New Neighborhood Bike Lanes
You’ve probably noticed the new bike lanes and shared lane markings (also known as sharrows) in the neighborhood. These enhancements to the roadways are meant to alert cars to share the road with bicycles. For more information about how to navigate through these areas, either by car or bicycle, visit the city of Minneapolis’s bike lane resource.
The designated bike routes through the neighborhood are Upton/Sheridan Aves. from 47th St. to 39th St, W. 44th St. between France and Upton Aves., and also W. 42nd St. between Sheridan Ave. and Lake Harriet Pkwy.
The striping of bike lanes on these designated routes is a step forward in promoting biking awareness and safety in Linden Hills, with the possibility of adding additional neighborhood bike lanes in the future.
The project was funded by LHiNC and the City of Minneapolis, with contributions from the Linden Hills Business Association, Clancey’s, the Linden Hills Co-op, and through individual donations made to Southwest Pedal Power.
