Rally for Old Cedar Bridge Funding: July 14

Recently, I wrote of the need for funding to replace the Old Cedar Avenue bridge, a critical bicycle commuting connector for the south metro. It was closed after it was declared unsafe in 2002. Prior to that, cyclists had done some impromptu repairs with plywood and used the bridge at their own risk — and it was probably unsafe well before 2002.

Minnesota State Representative Ann Lenczewski is staging a rally to support just such a goal on July 14, at noon. This weekend time offers good potential for attendance for many people — after all, bicycle commuters who want the bridge back are probably working at noon on weekdays!

The rally will be on the Bloomington side of the bridge, which is near Cedar Avenue and Old Shakopee Road. It’s a nice ride from many parts of the metro, and it would be good to see cyclists in attendance with their bicycles.
