Re: Bike Share

It looks like they identified an area from Lowry to Lake and concentrated their hub planning on that. In fact, considering the number on that map for north of Lowry (0), the 22 hubs planned south of Lake are pretty good.

Re: Electric Scooters

Do people scooter in the protected bike lanes on Washington? Or are they on the sidewalk there? What do people do on Nicollet?

Re: D Line - Chicago-Fremont/Emerson Rapid Bus

This is one of those cases where "whether I am right" is less important than "how will people react to this, whether I am right or not". I'm with MNdible that there could be a significant backlash to this once it's built as planned.

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Are they going to close off that whole sidewalk on the west side of Nicollet? From the way those barriers are placed, that's sort of what it looks like.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

I think those right-turn lanes are the problem. I don't like merging zones either--or those bike lanes that run between through lane and right-turn lane--but at least there the expected behavior of both parties is fairly clear. The right-turn lanes on Washington Ave allow cars to take those turns pr...

Speaking of St. Paul missed connections, does anybody have any insight as to what it would take to properly connect SE 5th Street next to Surly?
Saint Paul vacated the ROW of 5th/Territorial when the Pavillion on Berry was built.

Re: West End / Central Park West Development - St. Louis Park

I thought this section was pretty disheartening: Even if Mid-America can identify that hot new concept and sell it on the demographics of the West End area, the center’s awkward design continues to be an obstacle, local developers say. The Twin Cities’ two other similar “main street”-designed lifest...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

It would be nice if the county would proactively do this before more people are killed. There is no justification for four lane designs on virtually all of these county roads. Almost all of them have ADT under 20k, and should be extremely easy fixes with few (if any) tradeoffs for drivers. http://a...

Yeah, have there been public designs of the Glenwood Ave bridge reconstruction? Seems a kinda critical piece to get right and not be a pedestrian hell.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Weird that it's just that .12 mile stretch. East to the county line has a maximum ADT of 15.9k, which is less than the stretch of Larpenteur that Ramsey County is 4-3ing this/next year (to say nothing of the 4-3 test coming on Maryland , with an ADT of 22.4k).

Re: Labeling the Transit System

The ABRT stop labeling is also pretty absurd. It's probably important to know that the A Line is on Snelling, or the D Line on Chicago, but "Chicago & 34th St" next to "Chicago and 38th St" next to "Chicago & 42nd St" etc. is way too much. It's as though Blue Line stations were "Hiawatha & Lake" and...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

That is a spectacular vista though. It will vanish when the other half of the block gets developed. It's a little bittersweet how few good vistas will remain of the City Hall clocktower (once the city's tallest building) in a few years. There used to be a great one along Park Ave that was blocked b...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Ramsey County is planning to do a 4-3 conversion of Larpenteur Ave (Dale to 35E) where three people have been killed walking in the last few years. Project will include bike lanes. Meeting here: https://www.facebook.com/events/854135888312101/

Re: Bike Share

I'm sure it has to do with St. Paul's bizarre decision to choose Lime as their preferred dockless bike company. Now, in the least surprising news of the year, Lime has pulled out as well. The big underlying issue really is that St. Paul has always been a tough market for bike share because it's a t...

Unfortunately, the stadium has a "no bags" policy that will make it very difficult to practically bike there for a game.
