On-Street Bike Lanes

On-street bike lanes are a cost-effective way to complete gaps in the City’s bike network. While trails might be preferred, the cost of constructing them is much higher than utilizing existing streets and striping a lane for bikes.  

In 2018, the City of Burnsville studied areas that could accommodate on-street bike lanes. The City Council approved two pilot project areas for 2019:

  • Connect existing off-street bike trails 
  • Connects existing trails to popular destinations including Crystal Lake and Beach, Keller Lake Park and Fischer Fields at Lac Lavon Park 
  • Addition of 5.5 - 6-foot striped bike lane in each direction
  • On-street parking will only be allowed on one side of the street
    (Parking will be allowed on the east side of the street only near the ball fields, and will move to being allowed on the west side of the street only near Crystal Lake Beach and north)

River Hills Drive
(Cliff Road to Highway 13)

  • Connect existing off-street bike trails 
  • Addition of 5.5 - 6-foot striped bike lane in each direction

Anticipated Timeline

Lac Lavon:  The City will finalize bike lane plans in May 2019, after collecting public feedback. It is anticipated that this project will be completed toward the end of summer 2019. 

River Hills:   Bike lanes on River Hills are being striped with a street project. During the public engagement process for the street project, adjacent property owners were notified of the proposed bike lanes. This project will be constructed later in the summer and striping - including bike lane striping - is anticipated to be completed in the fall.

Public Input

Public input was received via an online survey that was open from May 8 through May 22 and an in person open house held May 15. View Submitted Feedback
