  • Promote economic growth and community investment while maintaining and providing business opportunities.
  • Create an inviting environment.
  • Enhance pedestrian and bicyclist safety.
  • Maintain and augment transit service.
  • Continue to increase vehicle safety.

Rice Street is a hub of activity in Saint Paul and serves a diverse mix of residents, travelers, visitors, businesses and modes of travel. The existing aging roadway has safety and traffic concern, and there are also needs to strengthen community development, business vitality, bike and pedestrian connections, public safety, livability and compatible land uses in the corridor.
