Maryland Avenue 4-to-3-Lane Conversion

Contact us

Maryland Avenue between Arkwright Street and Greenbrier Street in Saint Paul was permanently striped as a three-lane road to improve safety for all users. Permanent pedestrian crossings were constructed at Desoto Street.

A new, smooth layer of pavement was also added to the road to extend the life of the driving surface.

Permanent traffic changes

The design included permanent changes to intersections that were put in place during the 2019 trial to accommodate the eastbound merge at Clark Street and the enhanced pedestrian crossing at Desoto Street.

For eastbound Maryland Avenue between Arkwright Street and Desoto Street:

  • Left turns are not allowed to/from Maryland Avenue.
  • Northbound/southbound drivers on Clark Street are not able to cross over Maryland Avenue.

To accommodate the enhanced pedestrian crossing at Desoto Street:

  • Left turns are not allowed to/from Maryland Avenue.
  • Northbound/southbound vehicles on Desoto Street are not able to cross over Maryland Avenue.
