The City of Saint Paul plans to reconstruct Minnesota Street in downtown. The project includes demolition and replacement of the pavement, sidewalks, and underground utilities along the corridor. The Public Works goals of the project are to: 

  • Improve safety for all users
  • Implement a bikeway connection
  • Improve the transit user experience downtown
  • Modernize the aging infrastructure
  • Create a resilient and people-oriented corridor
  • Support the evolving needs of downtown users

Minnesota Street from Kellogg Boulevard to 11th Street in downtown. 

Community engagement began in early 2021. Construction for Phase1 from Kellogg Boulevard to 6th Street will begin in 2023. Phase 2 construction, which is Minnesota Street from 6th Street to 11th Street, will begin in 2024. 


    Fall 2021 Community Feedback is Available 

    Thank you for participating in this second round of engagement for the Minnesota Street Reconstruction Project in Fall 2021. We had dozens of great stakeholder conversations, we held and recorded a virtual meeting, and 173 surveys were filled out. Three key themes were gleaned from the survey responses: 

    • Landscaping and pedestrian buffer from traffic is a top priority 
    • To accommodate all users safely, a protected bicycle facility is highly desirable 
    • Parking should be considered on a block-by-block basis once other modal needs have been met 

    Next steps 

    We are actively translating this feedback into a draft corridor design. In the Spring of 2022, project staff will be reaching back out to stakeholders to discuss the design details and organizing a virtual meeting to share the corridor design.
