Green gateways to our city
The Hennepin-Lyndale Crossroads is the nexus of some of the region’s most important institutions and civic spaces, and Green Minneapolis anchors the public-private partnership to transform the famous bottleneck into a green gateway to our city.
New plantings on intersection medians, an ongoing maintenance plan and coordination among stakeholders has turned an unkempt and vehicle-focused intersection into a natural oasis welcoming to pedestrians. Green corridors connect people to places.
In future years we plan to expand the plantings north and south to further connect this important cultural intersection with downtown. We will also look to support pedestrian improvements at the Dunwoody underpass, including additional lighting, art and landscaping.
