Station Consideration Planned Condition*
Intersection 
location
Emerson-Fremont & 26th Avenue
Platform location

Southbound: Farside of 26th Avenue on Fremont, southwest corner
Farside has adequate platform length available and is preferred to maximize transit signal priority potential.

Northbound: Farside of 26th Avenue on Emerson, northeast corner
Farside has adequate platform length available and is preferred to maximize transit signal priority potential. Nearside not feasible due to driveway about 20’ from intersection.

*Final conditions to be developed during the engineering/design process.

Back to D Line Station Plan

Emerson - Fremont and 26th Avenue Station. Northbound far side 26th Avenue on Emerson Avenue, southbound far side 26th Avenue on Fremont Avenue.

Station Consideration Planned Condition*
Station spacing

Southbound: About 0.5 mi to Emerson-Fremont & West Broadway
Within guidelines of about half-mile station spacing.

Northbound: About 0.5 mi to Emerson-Fremont & Lowry
Within guidelines of about half-mile station spacing.

Existing ridership within
a block, or about 1/8 mile
(Fall 2016)

About 380 boardings per weekday

Platform location compared
to existing bus stop
Southbound and northbound: At opposite corner of existing bus stop
Connecting service No connecting service
Parking changes

Southbound and northbound: Reduction of about 2-3 parking spaces, due to the relocation and expansion of existing bus stop zone.

Potential for existing nearside bus stop zone to be converted to curbside parking.

Station Consideration Planned Condition*
Curb configuration

Southbound and northbound: Bumpout

Bumpouts will maximize operational efficiency and pedestrian space.

Platform length

Southbound and northbound: 60’ platform

Platforms will be designed to accommodate a 60’ BRT vehicle.

An additional station between Lowry and West Broadway is warranted because of consistent transit demand in this segment. 26th Avenue offers even station spacing, a signalized intersection for safe operations, and similar ridership to surrounding stops.

Project coordination: Emerson/Fremont Avenues bicycle-pedestrian improvement project

  • D Line station planning in north Minneapolis between Plymouth Avenue and 42nd Avenue occurred in conjunction with the development of the City of Minneapolis Emerson-Fremont Avenues bicycle-pedestrian improvement project. Outreach and engagement occurred separately between projects.

  • Station locations were coordinated in advance of the city’s 2014 Regional Solicitation application and confirmed in late 2016.

  • Coordination ensures that bicycle-pedestrian improvements (planned for construction in 2018) will not be impacted by D Line construction (planned for construction in 2020/2021, pending full project funding).
