Addressed the deteriorating pavement, utility and drainage concerns, non-motorized accommodations and storm water quality conditions. The goal was to design 66th Street to be safer, more livable, and welcoming to all users, while balancing potential impacts to residents and businesses along the corridor. The project extended from Xerxes Avenue on the west to 16th Avenue on the east.
Roundabouts were approved by City Council on February 24, 2015, on 66th Street at Lyndale Avenue and Nicollet Avenue intersections. Click here to learn more about roundabouts.
