In 2022, Public Works will be implementing quick build safety improvements on 12 High Injury Streets across the City as part of the Vision Zero Program.
These improvements are quick-build in nature and consist primarily of paint and bollards. These safety improvements may include curb extensions (bump-outs), pedestrian medians, slow turn wedges, hardened centerlines, hi-visibility crosswalks, bike conflict zone markings, and retroreflective backplates.
The goals of these treatments are to increase the safety of all roadway users by encouraging safe driving behaviors, decreasing vehicle speeds, reducing crossing distances for people walking, and improving visibility at intersections. The City has created an interactive map where people can report traffic safety concerns specifically on High Injury Streets – our Vision Zero team reviews this periodically as we are identifying locations and planning for safety improvements.
Of the 12 High Injury Streets identified for improvement this year, 2 are located in your neighborhood:
E 31st St (Nicollet to Cedar)
E 35th St (Nicollet to Hiawatha)
