New Pedestrian Crossing Coming to 31st & Girard

31st and girard

Minneapolis has begun the construction of a new, enhanced crosswalk on the western side of W. 31st Street at Girard Avenue S. In fact the concrete work on the accessible pedestrian ramps and overhead signal pole with embedded light have been installed.

This crossing was selected as one of the locations to be outfitted with a red-flashing pedestrian signal. This style of pedestrian crossing signal is experimental and has been approved by the FHWA for testing and evaluation at a handful of locations in Minneapolis. If all goes well, the completed and fully operational signal is scheduled to be up and running by the end of December. A zebra-style marked crosswalk will be installed in spring 2015 when pavement conditions are opttimal.
