City And County To Host Feb 6 Open House About Glenwood Ave Repaving Project
January 30, 2017
This summer, Hennepin County will be repaving Glenwood Ave (County Rd 40) between Hwys 55 and 100. The project provides an opportunity to make some improvements for motorists and bicyclists. To share more details with those who live and travel in the area, the County and the City of Golden Valley are hosting an open house Monday, Feb 6, 6:30-8 pm, at City Hall, 7800 Golden Valley Rd.
There is no formal presentation, so you can come any time. You will have an opportunity to ask questions or share comments, either by speaking directly with staff or submitting them in writing.
The proposed project includes:
- slightly narrowing the lanes of Glenwood Ave 1-2 feet to encourage lower speeds and better adherence to the posted speed limit
- designating the existing roadway shoulders as on-road bike lanes
There may also be additional refinement and enhancements to this road in the future. Layouts of the proposed changes are available on the project website.
