Bike lanes, crosswalk coming to Washington in North Loop


New bike lanes and a crosswalk are coming to Washington Avenue in the North Loop in August — a project designed to calm a street home to an increasing number of walkers and bikers.

The new lanes and a crosswalk at 8th Avenue North near Borough and Parlour will be painted within four to six weeks, said Bob Byers, a senior transportation planner for Hennepin County.

Byers and North Loop Neighborhood Association President David Frank held an open house at Smack Shack on Tuesday to brief neighbors on the project.
