We held an open house on November 14, 2018 to share preliminary plan materials and gather feedback on our work. A recording of the presentation and a summary of open house comments  are available. 

Over 65 individuals and six organizations submitted comments on the draft plan during the official public comment period (December 15, 2018 - February 11, 2019). City staff prepared a response to comments and revised the draft plan accordingly. Revisions were approved by the Saint Paul Transportation Committee and Saint Paul Planning Commission.

Stop for Me

Watch our Crosswalk Safety Video

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:
