Capital City Bikeway

Capital City Bikeway Interim Design

Project Updates: September 2, 2020

This fall, the next section of the Capital City Bikeway will be implemented on 10th Street from Dorothy Day Place to Jackson Street, and 9th Street from Jackson Street to Broadway Street. This work is being done in coordination with the Downtown Pavement and Sidewalk Improvement Project.

The bikeway will be a two-way bikeway on the south side of 10th Street from Dorothy Day Place to Jackson Street and one-way bikeways on both sides of 9th Street from Jackson Street to Broadway Street. The detailed map of the bikeway is at stpaul.gov/ccbinterimstudy.

The addition of the bikeway on 9th Street and 10th Street will include the following changes to the roads:

  • 10th Street between Cedar Street and Jackson Street will become a one-way road with westbound traffic only and the new bikeway.
  • Traffic signs will be changed and added with the addition of the bikeway and the modification of 10th Street to a one-way between Cedar Street and Jackson Street.
  • Existing on-street parking (and meters) will be removed on both sides of 10th Street from St. Peter Street to Cedar Street, the south side of 10th Street from Cedar Street to Jackson Street and the south side of 9th Street. Parking will remain on the north side of 10th Street between Cedar Street and Jackson Street.
  • Concrete median buffers will be constructed along portions of 10th Street to separate the bikeway from the roadway. Access to driveways will be maintained.
  • The mill and overlay will improve the roadway surface and new striping will indicate the added bikeway and roadway changes.

Timeline for implementation of the bikeway on 9th Street and 10th Street:

  • Any needed sidewalk work will be completed by the end of September.
  • Parking removals and striping will start as early as next week (September 8) on 9th Street between Jackson Street and Broadway Street.
  • Parking removals on 10th Street will be done in the later half of September before the mill and overlay.
  • Striping on 10th Street will be completed with the mill and overlay in late September or early October. No parking signs will be posted at least 24 hours in advance of the mill and overlay.
  • Signs will be changed in conjunction with other work on the roadway section.
  • The concrete median will be constructed by the end of November after all other work is completed.

As with any construction project, there are many pieces and crews to coordinate. Please be aware that there will likely be breaks between the completion of one item and the start of another.
