Locations with new bikeway facilities showed higher increases in bicycling than locations without
improvements. For example, two locations in north Minneapolis, 7th Street N. over I-94 and
Lyndale Ave. N. south of Broadway, averaged nearly the same when neither had bike lanes. In 2009,
the 7th Street location had 13 bicyclists in the two hour count period, while the Lyndale location
had 12. After bike lanes were added in 2012, the 7th Street location doubled to 26 and was up to
33 in 2013. Meanwhile the Lyndale location (still without bike lanes) recorded only 10 in 2012 and
11 bicyclists in 2013.
