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.
Draft Plan Adoption Roadmap
The Saint Paul Planning Commission held a public hearing on the Draft Saint Paul Pedestrian Plan on February 8, 2019. The comment period is now closed. Comments are being reviewed by city staff. City staff are preparing a response to comments and proposed revisions to the draft plan. After the Transportation Committee and the Planning Commission have approved plan revisions, a final draft plan will be shared with the City Council for adoption at a public hearing, anticipated in spring 2019. The public hearing date will be posted on this page when it is set.

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.
