City of Edina Comprehensive Bicycle Transportation Plan

New bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Edina.

CDG worked closely with Edina residents and staff to develop the city’s first Comprehensive Bicycle Transportation Plan, which continues to guide its infrastructure implementation decisions.

Prominently informed by a Public Health / Active Living approach, the Plan envisions a fine-grained network of bicycle routes throughout the city and aims to provide Edina’s citizens easy, safe and convenient connections to schools, parks, shopping and entertainment, as well as access to regional bicycle transportation and recreation routes. A core priority of the Plan was the provision of high-quality bicycle facilities and connections to and from the City's public schools.

Focused on implementation, the Plan’s framework and recommendations were developed to support the city’s step-by-step, gradual transformation into a “progressive bicycle-friendly community where citizens can easily integrate cycling into their daily lives.” The Plan and its recommendations have facilitated the city’s successful application for several implementation grants to fund its well-recognized and ongoing improvements.
