Griggs received a new bicycle and pedestrian bridge over I-94 a few years ago and in 2014 the entire North-South stretch of Griggs was transformed into a bike boulevard. The Friendly Streets Initiative is working with the Lex-Ham Community Council, Union Park District Council, CommonBond Communities – Skyline Tower and Lexington Commons, and the Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation to improve wayfinding and placemaking on and around the bridge north and south of the freeway. We held a kickoff block party on April 25th, see photos here! This was followed by an online survey period and a community design workshop by the Saint Paul Riverfront Corporation.

Here’s a fun timelapse video Matty Lang created that shows what it’s like to bike along the new Griggs bikeway northward over the bridge to connect with the Charles bike boulevard.
