Arlington Avenue Bikeway

Arlington Ave project map

What is Proposed?

Saint Paul Public Works is planning to resurface Arlington Avenue between Rice Street and Jackson Street in 2018. The Saint Paul Bicycle Plan recommends in-street separated lanes within the project corridor, and Public Works is proposing to install bike lanes when the street is resurfaced.

Purpose

Adding bike lanes to Arlington Avenue between Rice and Jackson streets will make the street a safer and more comfortable place to ride a bike. Bike lanes will also encourage more predictable riding behavior by providing a dedicated place to ride on the street outside of the motorized travel lane.

Changes to On-Street Parking

There is currently parking on both sides of Arlington Avenue at many locations throughout the corridor. To add bike lanes, parking would need to be removed on one side of the road between Rice and Jackson Streets. Parking removal is proposed for the south side of Arlington between Rice and Jackson streets. To accommodate a lane shift, a small amount of parking is also proposed for removal on the north side of Arlington immediately west of Jackson Street.
