The Future of 4th Street

The Future of Fourth will open Fourth Street in downtown St. Paul as a place for people, not just cars. The street will be open for bike and pedestrian traffic only from Minnesota Street to Wacouta Street on Thursday, May 8th from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. to enjoy the cycle track, food trucks, parklets, art and more!

This “greenway for a day” will demonstrate protected bike lanes on the street, like those recommended in the recently released St. Paul Bikeways Plan. The event will also showcase the development potential of the street through pop-up shops and placemaking activities, turning Fourth Street into a place people want to be – all leading up to the 20th annual Great River Gathering that evening at the Union Depot.

  • Protected on-street bike lanes
