As redevelopment along the North Minneapolis riverfront begins to become a reality as part of the Above the Falls planning efforts, it is important to ensure that river adjacent neighborhoods in North Minneapolis have safe and direct access to these new amenities and opportunities. New trails and parkland both planned and developed within the Above the Falls area have resulted in additional consideration for improving the connections and access for North Minneapolis communities. Currently I-94, active railroad tracks, and an assortment of heavy and light industrial land use activities serve as significant physical barriers in accessing the riverfront. Addressing these barriers is a major land use challenge that if completed will ensure equitable access and enjoyment of the riverfront as new trails and parkland are developed.
