Minneapolis adding rush-hour bus lanes to Hennepin, Nicollet, and Chicago Avenues

Three major avenues south of downtown Minneapolis will have rush-hour bus lanes added to them starting in August. Parking will be restricted in order to make room for the extra bus-only lane.

Tim Harlow at the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

On Hennepin, the location of the bus lane will change during the day. From 7 a.m. to 9 a.m., there will be no street parking on the northbound side between Lake Street and the Uptown Transit Station and from 25th Street to Franklin Avenue — keeping that space clear for a bus lane. From 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., there will be no parking southbound from Franklin Avenue to 25th Street, and buses will run in that space. Parking will still be allowed when bus lanes are not in effect.

New seal coating and paint markings will be put down to designate the areas that will be used as a bus-only lane, Mechtenberg said.
