Project Purpose

The City of Rochester is in the final months of the planning stages and looking to start final design this spring for a 2019 reconstruction of Broadway Avenue (from Civic Center Drive to 13th Street North). This project is intended to begin the transformation of the Broadway Avenue corridor into a significant multi-modal gateway to downtown Rochester and the Destination Medical Center (DMC) Development District. The Broadway Avenue Corridor Study, completed in 2015, set the stage for future improvements that will occur.


Project Schedule

  • ·        2017: Planning/Preliminary Design – Define WHAT to build
  • ·        2018: Final Design & Construction Documents – Define HOW to build it
  • ·        2019: Construction Begins

Bike Walk Minnesota conference April 29th - May 1st


The Bike+Walk Minnesota Conference is geared toward everyone interested in supporting and promoting biking and walking in Minnesota. We want you at the table if your background comes from parks and recreation, public health, tourism, transportation planning, politics, or advocacy.


It will be a multidisciplinary conversation about the intersection of active transportation, community development, inequities, and advocacy. Professionals and advocates from across Minnesota will come together and go beyond breakout sessions to explore connections between biking and walking, discuss how communities are creating better public spaces for all users, and address the open-ended question of what comes next for transportation and recreation options in the North Star State.


What to expect: Two full days of professional programming, breakout sessions, keynotes, and mobile workshops. Additionally, there will be opportunities for networking and informal collaboration on Sunday afternoon, Sunday evening, and Monday evening.


When: April 29 – May 1, 2018

Where: The DoubleTree Hotel in Rochester, 150 S Broadway, Rochester, MN 55904
