Besides the bike lanes not having bollards or some kind of protection from traffic, I really like what Richfield did with Lyndale. Hopefully Bloomington does the same between 494 and 98th Street. I know the city wants to spruce up that corridor and make it more community-oriented rather than a car sewer where people race each other to the next red light.

Also going back to the topic of 84th Street, it would be nice if they could shoehorn a trail on the west side of 84th (in between the road and the train tracks). That way there aren't any cross streets and turning traffic to worry about between Bush Lake Road and 78th Street.

This would be amazing! I did a double take when I realized where they were planning to go

Not directly related, but I looked at the link and found a story about how RV sales are skyrocketing. Seems like people still want to go on vacation, but without the risk of catching coronavirus on an airplane, train, or hotel.
