Hennepin County is working to build a Lyndale Avenue for today and tomorrow. The county is partnering with the city of Minneapolis, Metro Transit and others to continue improving safety for all users on Lyndale Avenue South (County Road 22) between Franklin Avenue (County Road 5) and 31st Street.
In July 2022, a new three-lane road configuration was implemented on this stretch of Lyndale Avenue South as part of a pilot project. Initial traffic data and feedback from people along the corridor is generally supportive of the change.
Through the fall of 2025, the county will be taking lessons learned from the pilot and finalizing the plan to rebuild this more than 50-year-old portion of Lyndale Avenue South. The 2026 reconstruction will include new streetlights, curbs, signals, sidewalks, pavement, underground utility work, and more.
