Walking Saint Paul

Saint Paul Pedestrian Plan

Saint Paul is a walking city. We are more healthy, resilient, and connected because walking is safe and appealing for all.

 

Walkers Walking

The City of Saint Paul is creating our first-ever plan to support safe walking. The plan will address citywide walking needs like connecting our sidewalk system, safer ways to cross streets, and education and enforcement programs to support safe walking. Read the draft plan goals.

Stop for Me

Minnesota law requires drivers to stop for people crossing the street at intersections. This year, as part of Saint Paul’s annual “Stop For Me” pedestrian safety campaign, Saint Paul police will be conducting extra enforcement at crosswalks. The City has partnered with the Minnesota Department of Transportation and University of Minnesota in a study to build awareness of pedestrian safety and measure how frequently motorists stop for pedestrians in Saint Paul. Research shows that currently only three in ten drivers in Saint Paul stop for people crossing the streets at crosswalks. The City of Saint Paul is working to promote safe crossing behaviors among the public while University of Minnesota researchers monitor several crosswalks in Saint Paul for improved driver compliance throughout the summer. Learn more:
