Minnehaha Parkway Closure

Parts of Minnehaha Parkway under I35W will be closed for several weeks to allow some of the bridge work contruction, according to MNDOT and the Star-Tribune. some of the paths – pedestrian and bicycle – will be kept open throughout.

I’m not sure if the city actively plow those paths as they do the Cedar Lake Trail and the Greenway, seeing as I don’t spend a lot of time in a bike in Minneapolis in winter, and if there’s enough snow to need plowing I’d rather be on skis or snowshoes or making a snow person. All of which should be counted as ‘cross training,’ for the record.

  1. Back when I was in high school (~15 years ago), the park board would regularly plow the bike path along Minnehaha. Unless budget cuts killed it, I can’t imagine it would be any different today.
