The Capital City Bikeway is a network of bicycle facilities throughout downtown Saint Paul. The bikeway network will connect to existing trails and on-street bikeways, allowing people comfortable and convenient bicycle access to and through downtown.
The development of bicycle facilities in the downtown was a top priority of the Saint Paul Bicycle Plan, adopted by City Council in March 2015. Following the adoption of the City’s Bicycle Plan, the City developed the Capital City Bikeway: Network Study and Design Guide in 2016, which includes a bikeway network study, bikeway network map, bikeway design guide, and bikeway implementation plan.
The first segment of the Capital City Bikeway was completed in 2017 along Jackson Street from University Avenue to Kellogg Boulevard. The second segment (north corridor) on 9th Street/10th Street was completed in 2020 as an interim design. The west corridor will be along Wabasha Street. A portion of the Wabasha Street segment is under construction in 2022. The south corridor will be along Kellogg Boulevard, with construction planned for 2023 and 2025.
