Johnson Parkway Regional Trail

In 2020, the City of Saint Paul will be constructing a trail along the east side of Johnson Parkway from Burns Avenue to Phalen Boulevard.  This is a planned segment of the Saint Paul Grand Round.

Implementing this project includes several initial steps to understand the impacts of potential improvements in the area:

Step 1

  • We will be counting vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians to have an understanding of how the parkway functions today.

Step 2

  • Beginning Wednesday, November 14, some intersections will be temporarily modified to simulate how future trail improvements would impact traffic.  
  • This may require travelers to temporarily use alternate routes.
  • The temporary modifications will be removed after the counting is completed - before the end of 2018

Step 3

  • The traffic information gathered before and after the temporary modifications will be analyzed to understand impacts to the street network. 
  • The results of this study will be posted to the project webpage.

Step 4

  • Public meetings to discuss the project are anticipated to occur in November and December. 
  • Meeting announcements will be posted.
