Cedar Lake Road Improvements

The City of St. Louis Park is transforming their transportation system from a focus on motorists to an emphasis on multimodal travel. This will include a series of sidewalk, bikeway, and trail expansions and a review of reconstruction projects to serve the community and be more equitable for residents and businesses. From a multimodal perspective, Cedar Lake Road is arguably the most important corridor in the city’s north side, and an essential connection for the city’s long-term sidewalk, bikeway, and trail master plan, known as Connect the Park.

Bolton & Menk evaluated and reimagined the corridor. The outcome meets all user’s needs by adding bikeway facilities to each side; adding pedestrian facilities to the south side; adding turn lanes where warranted; saving the north boulevard and several mature trees; establishing a south boulevard; adding bus bump-ins to keep riders off the street for loading/un-loading; and, although parking was reduced, adding parking bays. We also launched a communication plan that emphasized consistent and timely messaging during design and construction, minimizing negative public impact.

These new pedestrian and bicycle facilities along Cedar Lake Road will serve as a safe and efficient transportation option for travelers opting for non-motorized transportation to get around the city.
