Street Design for Cyclists & Pedestrians

MPR reported this morning that Minneapolis is taking some federal funding and redesigning some residential streets to provide better travel opportunities for bicyclists and pedestrians.

These bike/walk streets will use traffic calming techniques to discourage vehicular through traffic, and reduce the number of cross-street stop signs to make using them more efficient for cyclists.

Transit for Livable Communities
has a lot of information on this program, and many opportunities for Twin Cities residents to offer opinions and ideas.
