Recent Midtown Greenway Coalition Accomplishments

This work on behalf of the Greenway is made possible by our donors.  Thank you to everyone who donates to support our work.

  • Launched the Extend the Greenway Partnership, to work on our long-held goal to extend the Greenway over the river. More than 35 local organizations are now part of the Partnership. In the summer of 2018 we launched a new engineering study of the bridge over the river, to figure out how much it would cost to rehab it for bikes and pedestrian use. The study is available here: Bridge Report
  • Organized one of the largest outdoor arts festivals in Minneapolis – the Greenway Glow Arts Festival.
  • Installed a new wayfinding kiosk in the Greenway, to help people find local businesses and their way along the Greenway. This “demonstration” kiosk will be used to gather information to help inform a larger wayfinding upgrade currently in the planning stages.
  • Installed two new murals in the Greenway, created by local artists of color. 
  • Took a leadership role in calling for safety enhancements and more community art for a new ramp that will be installed in the Greenway at 35W, leading to/from the new transit center at Lake Street. As a result of our advocacy, a grant of $250,000 for public art has been awarded for the ramp, and additional safety measures have been added to the design.
  • Installed a series of wayfinding signs and banners in the Greenway, informing Greenway users where to exit to get to Lake Street and Eat Street (Nicollet Ave.).
  • Celebrated the planting of the 5,000th tree in the Greenway as part of our annual Arbor Day efforts with the Midtown Community Works Partnership.
  • Coordinated 45 Adopt-A-Greenway organizations who organized more than 60 clean-ups.
