Plan for redesigning Hennepin Avenue moves forward
A plan to redesign part of Hennepin Avenue in Uptown is moving forward once again, but without plans for 24-hour bus lanes.
As previously reported by 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey vetoed previous plans, citing concerns the 24-hour bus lane wasn’t necessary and would get rid of valuable parking spots, which would hurt nearby businesses.
Now, Frey and city councilors have come to an agreement for bus lanes, which would only operate six hours a day.
The plan now heads to the full council for final approval.
