The City of Fridley is reviewing a pedestrian and bicycle improvement project along 7th Street from 53rd Avenue to 61st Avenue. This project would include constructing a ten-foot wide trail on the east side of 7th Street (See reverse). From 53rd Avenue to 59th Avenue we would moving the existing eastern curb for space to build a proposed trail behind the curb for pedestrians and cyclists to use. This would eliminate parking on the east side of the roadway from 53rd Avenue to 59th Avenue.
This project is being proposed to create another connection to our current bike/walkway network that in accordance with the City’s active transportation plan.
This project is in very early planning stages and at this point we are looking to gain feedback. We are also pursuing grant money to cover the cost of construction. If funding is provided and the project moves forward, the earliest construction would begin is 2020. Below are pictures of some options for design.
