Minneapolis - Downtown Gets Its first Woonerf

Downtown Minneapolis now has a "woonerf" — a low-speed shared passage for pedestrians, bikes and cars.
The developers of Mill City Quarter are pinning the Dutch term on the public-private space they’re opening at 2 p.m. Thursday along the path of a former rail spur that bisects a shared parking area between two new apartment buildings.
The corridor is less than 500 feet long, and it lacks some of the features of a classic European woonerf, but it’s likely to draw crowds once the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board links it to nearby W. River Parkway riverfront trails for foot and bike traffic. That’s tentatively scheduled for 2019.
