What once was said to become an Avenue of the Arts has a new proposed plan looking ahead. Mayor Betsy Hodges has proposed that about a mile of 3rd Avenue, between the Mississippi River and the Convention Center, be converted to a green link for walkers and bikers alike. The plan would remove three signature landscaped medians. Some of the greenery from these medians would be shifted and planters would serve as dividers between pedestrians and motorists. That which isn’t divided by planters would be divided with the all familiar white tubes that can be seen around the city.

The proposal would provide Minneapolis with something that has been highly desirable to bikers in the area; a devoted north-south bike lane near the heart of downtown Minneapolis. There are still many details to be ironed out before this proposal could become a reality. But considering that the city counts 850 bikers daily on 3rd Ave., even with it’s current tight space, this proposal (if done right) could be very beneficial.
