This is a sunset facing downtown Minneapolis from the Martin Olav Sabo bridge. This bridge was built for pedestrians and bikers so that they could cross busy Hiawatha Ave without having to deal with traffic and lights on the street level. It is the first suspension bridge in the state of Minnesota and was the fourth phase of the Midtown Greenway rail trail project, which gives bicycle commuters a virtually traffic free route across the city. A fifth phase of the project seeks to build a bridge across the Mississippi and into Saint Paul.
This photograph was quickly snapped, didn't even want to take it... the bridge rail is what is in focus. :(
This column plans on doing a travel feature of the Minneapolis biking system.
This is another shot from the Midtown Greenway. These posters were put up around town after the state government shut down. There were a lot of angry folks ranting around town...
These kind of street problems are all over the city. Fortunately, it seems we've received quite a few stimulus funds to repair and resurface a lot of our roads.
This is the bakery from the dead squirrel article.
