About the Saint Paul Bicycle Plan:

The current plan was adopted by the City Council in March 2015 after several years of public engagement. While the current plan is still used by the City and its partners to expand the bike network, it could use a refresh.

This update will focus on two major objectives:

1) Update the planned network to include more separated bike lanes and paths

  • National and state guidance recommends spaces to bike that are more separated from car traffic.
  • The City has heard from the community that to get more people biking, there needs to be a connected network of separated bike lanes and paths.

2) Identify where and how the City should prioritize resources to expand the bike network and get more people riding bikes

  • The current plan prioritizes 1) creating a network of comfortable bike facilities in downtown and 2) completing the Grand Round, a network of bike facilities connecting our beautiful parks. The City has made major progress since 2015, and as we continue to work towards completing these goals, we want to think about what’s next.
