Saint Paul Public Works is resurfacing Hamline Avenue between Highland Parkway and Randolph Avenue in the fall of 2021. Improvements and changes to the roadway are proposed as part of this project.
Public Works is proposing to install bike lanes, according to the Saint Paul Bicycle Plan, when the street is resurfaced. The addition of in-street bike lanes will make the street a safer and more comfortable place for people who ride a bike as well as for people who drive.
Changes to On-Street Parking
Parking is currently allowed on both sides of Hamline Avenue between Highland Parkway and Randolph Avenue. To create space for the bike lanes, parking must be removed from one side of Hamline Avenue for most of the project area. The northernmost 100 feet of the project area (from Randolph Avenue to the first alley south of Randolph Avenue) the street is wide enough to retain the existing parking on both sides of the street. The impacts to parking are as follows:
Parking will be prohibited:
- east side of Hamline Avenue from Highland Parkway to the alley just south of Randolph Avenue
Parking will continue to be allowed:
- east side of Hamline Avenue from the alley just south of Randolph Avenue to Randolph Avenue
- west side of Hamline Avenue from Highland Parkway to Randolph Avenue
