Abstract

Description

The Hiawatha Light Rail Line opened in June of 2004 in Minneapolis as the first rail transit line in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Soon after the line opened, neighbors and neighborhood groups began expressing concern over poorly operating intersections. One of the worst intersections serving both the LRT and automobiles was 46th Street and Hiawatha Avenue. 46th Street serves not only as a neighborhood collector street but also as a throughput street for those coming from Saint Paul. In the summer of 2004, soon after the light rail line opened, a 46th Street Task Force was created as a subsidiary of the Longfellow Community Council (LCC) in Minneapolis. The purpose of this newly created task force was to research, discuss, and theorize over the issues related to traffic and the LRT at the 46th Street station area. This report examines resident concerns and makes suggestions for the improvement of the traffic congestion on 46th street.
