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:

Lac Lavon: The City finalized bike lane plans during summer 2019, after collecting public feedback. It is anticipated that this project will be completed in spring 2020.
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 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
