Broadway St NE to 17th Ave NE and Tyler St NE to Quincy St NE


Project Description:

The proposed project is the reconstruction of numerous street segments in the Logan Park neighborhood. These streets consist of heavily patched brick pavers and unpaved streets. These streets are primarily in the Logan Park Neighborhood, immediately adjacent to Central Avenue NE. Specific street segments to be reconstructed are:


• 12th Avenue NE – From Jackson Street to Central Avenue

• 13th Avenue NE – From Central Avenue to Tyler Street

• 14th Avenue NE – From Quincy Street to Tyler Street

• 15th Avenue NE – From Jackson Street to Van Buren Street

• Jackson Street NE – From 15th Avenue to Dead-End north of 15th Avenue

• Jackson Street NE – From Broadway Street to 12th Avenue

• Quincy Street NE – From Broadway Street to 15th Avenue

• Tyler Street NE – From Broadway Street to 13th Avenue

• Van Buren Street NE – 14th Avenue to 15th Avenue


The typical existing section with the project area includes two travel lanes and a mix of parallel and perpendicular parking lanes on both sides of the streets. Sidewalks are currently present in limited sections of the project area, as there are significant sidewalk gaps on both sides of the street along a majority of the project area. The land use along the project corridor is commercial and abutting properties are predominantly commercial office facilities, but recent, ongoing, and planned redevelopment in the area will drastically change the surrounding land uses and density. The proposed project is a full reconstruction involving the entire right-of-way and will include new sidewalks, ADA pedestrian ramps, upgraded rail crossings, pavement, curb and gutter, and utility improvements. The project will also include signal improvements, new signage, and new pavement markings, as needed.



Purpose and Justification:

These streets were constructed at various times prior to 1957. They are a mixture of pavement types including brick pavers, asphalt, concrete, asphalt over concrete, and unpaved streets. They have been patched and repaired a number of times. Most of these streets cannot be rated due to the absence of an asphalt or concrete surface but they have extremely poor ride quality due to the age and poor overall condition of the roadways. Many of the streets do not have sidewalks or ADA-compliant curb ramps and this project will provide an opportunity to upgrade pedestrian infrastructure to make the street accessible for all users. The project’s design will draw on the City’s Street Design Guide for streets designated as Historic Streets to inform which streets with historic pavers will be preserved. Adjacent to the project area, Broadway St NE and Central Ave NE serve an estimated 120-330 people walking, 90-330 people biking, and between 15,700 – 19,700 people driving per day.

Will the project contribute to growth in the city’s tax base?

Maintains existing tax base.


Describe the economic development impact of the project:

Not Applicable


Does the project support redevelopment opportunity that without the project would be infeasible?

Not Applicalbe

Transportation


Is the proposed project on an existing or planned transitway, transit route, or high-volume pedestrian corridor? If yes, provide details on how the project will improve the transit and/or pedestrian experience.

No. There are no transit routes on these streets. These are not high volume pedestrian corridors; however, increased pedestrian activity has occurred in recent years with development in the surrounding areas.


Does the proposed project anticipate multi-modal enhancements (sidewalks, bicycle or transit facilities)? Provide details.

Yes. There are several sidewalk gaps in the project area and some of these gaps may be filled with construction of new sidewalks.


Is the right-of-way constrained and do you anticipate that modes of travel will be competing for space? Provide details, is there potential for innovative design options? Provide details

Yes, the right-of-way is constrained within this project area with competing needs for vehicle travel lanes, on-street parking, and sidewalks. Design options have not yet been explored for this project.

Operating Impacts


Operations & Capital Asset Maintenance:

Is this request for new or existing infrastructure? Existing

What is the expected useful life of the project/Improvement? 60 Years

Year that Operating Incr/(Decr) will take effect? 2024

What is the estimated annual operating cost increase or (decrease) for this project? Not Applicable

Any Prior Year Remaining Bond Authorizations? No

Prior Year Remaining Bond Authorizations: Not Applicable


Describe how operating cost increases or decreases were determined and include details such as personnel costs, materials, contracts, energy savings, etc:

There is no net change in the annual operating budget, Public Works will reallocate those dollars to aging infrastructure elsewhere in the system.


In general, the cost to maintain a street/alley in poor condition is estimated at $10,000 per mile per year for a commercial/MSA type of roadway. Given the length of this project at 1.13 miles, the estimated annual cost to maintain these roadways is $11,300 per year.


If new infrastructure, discuss how the department/agency will pay for the increased annual operating costs:

Not Applicable


For new infrastructure, describe the estimated timing and dollar amount of future capital investment required to realize the full expected useful life of the project:

Not Applicable

If this is a new project, describe the major project phases and timing anticipated for completing the project:

Minneapolis Public Works anticipates preliminary design and public involvement to begin two years prior to the start of project construction


Scalability/Funding Allocation Flexibility – discuss any flexibility to increase or decrease funding among the years in the five-year plan and the most that could be spent in a given year:

This project is anticipated to be a two-year construction project. Spreading the construction over additional years decreases the cost effectiveness of the project.

Minneapolis Goals and Strategic Direction

Minneapolis is a growing and vibrant world-class city with a flourishing economy and a pristine environment, where all people are safe, healthy and have equitable opportunities for success and happiness. Below is a description of how this project meets each of the City's Goals.

Public Safety


Collaborative and community-inclusive strategies to ensure safety for all members of our community:

Increase accessibility of public infrastructure and public amenities.


Use design principles that ensure a safe and welcoming environment when designing all projects that impact the public realm.

Prioritize safety investments in line with the Complete Streets Policy.


Improve safety for pedestrians, and prioritize pedestrians over other road users, especially at street intersections; focus on signals, crosswalks, lighting, signage, visibility and lowering vehicular speeds through street design and other measures.


Public Health

The City has declared racism a public health emergency, noting that “racism in all its forms causes persistent discrimination and disparate outcomes in many areas of life”. Public Works recognizes the impact of racism in transportation systems and this program/project seeks to promote transportation equity and justice in accordance with the goals of the Strategic & Racial Equity Action Plan 2019-2022 by providing equitable access to multimodal transportation in all parts of the City through thoughtful planning and design.


Environmental Justice:


The City prioritizes sustainable practices and renewable resources to equitably address climate change while restoring and protecting our soil, water and air.

Reduce the energy, carbon, and health impacts of transportation through reduced single-occupancy vehicle trips and phasing out of fossil fuel vehicles.


Plan, design, build, maintain, and operate the city’s transportation system in a way that prioritizes pedestrians first, followed by bicycling and transit use, and lastly motor vehicle use. (Complete Streets Policy. Adopted May 2016.)


Improve the pedestrian environment in order to encourage walking and the use of mobility aids as a mode of transportation.


Improve and expand bicycle facilities in order to encourage bicycling as a mode of transportation.


Improve access to goods and services via walking, biking and transit.


Support development and public realm improvements near existing and planned METRO stations that result in walkable districts for living, working, shopping, and recreating.


Proactively improve the public realm to support a pedestrian friendly, high-quality and distinctive built environment.


Improve the tree canopy and urban forest.


Improve air quality by reducing emissions of pollutants that harm human health and the environment.


Minneapolis has also declared a climate emergency that demands a massive-scale mobilization to halt, reverse and address the consequences and causes of climate change. Through the Transportation Action Plan, Public Works has stated its intention to drastically reduce the transportation sector’s contribution to greenhouse gas emissions, and this program/project aims to develop networks that will bring a climate-forward transportation system for the people of Minneapolis.

Built Environment & Transportation:


The City prioritizes high quality neighborhoods, streets, infrastructure and equitable access to multimodal transportation in all parts of the City through thoughtful planning and design.

The City of Minneapolis will promote design for the built environment that is dynamic and durable, reflects the diversity of Minneapolis residents, and contributes to a sense of place and community identity. The City will also proactively improve the public realm, including streets, sidewalks, parks and open spaces between buildings, to ensure that public spaces and private development are thoughtfully connected.


Achieving this goal also requires changes to the transportation system that make it easier to walk, bike or use transit to access daily needs. The City will proactively improve the pedestrian environment and continue to build and maintain a network of bikeways, while working with Metro Transit to increase the frequency, speed and reliability of the public transit system.
