Changes coming to St. Paul's Marshall Avenue

Center turn lanes will be removed and bike lanes will be added as part of a redo this summer on a segment of Marshall Avenue in St. Paul.

The changes will be incorporated between Snelling Avenue and Lexington Pkwy. as part of a mill and overlay project planned by Ramsey County.

An open house to show off preliminary plans for the project and allow the public to ask questions will be held from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Oxford Community Center, 270 N. Lexington Pkwy.

Bike lanes already exist on Marshall Avenue from the Mississippi River bridge to Fry Street. The project would extend those lanes to Lexington Pkwy. and connect riders with landmarks such as Concordia University, Dunning Fields, Central High School and the Oxford Community Center.

Center turn lanes would be removed to make room for the bike lanes. Left turn lanes would remain at busy intersections such as Snelling, Lexington and Hamline Avenue.

The redesign could bring some parking lane restrictions, said Mike Klobucar of the city's Public Works department.
