Streetscape and Sidewalk Improvements along Lake Street 

A newly reconfigured Lake Street, from Broadway to Ferndale, is improving accessibility and creating a safer environment for pedestrians, cyclists, vehicles, and businesses. The project includes:

  • A two-way off-street bike lane on the Southside of the street, providing a seamless connection to the Dakota Rail Regional Trail
  • Expanded sidewalks on the north side of the street to enhance shopping and dining experiences
  • Dedicated turn lanes at the intersection of Barry and Lake Street, creating smoother trac flow while preserving on-street parking
  • spaces that supplement free public parking throughout downtown
  • Upgraded railroad crossings at Barry, Broadway, and Ferndale to greatly enhance safety and accessibility to the lake
  • Critical public works upgrades, including water main, storm sewer, and water treatment infrastructure improvements
