President Obama’s visit to a popular Minneapolis park Thursday will cause several road closures and parking restrictions. The Minneapolis Park and Recreations Board says the president will visit Minnehaha Park for an event that’s closed to the public.
A group of bicyclists want a protected bike lane on a busy road in Minneapolis. Minnehaha Avenue is set for reconstruction in 2015. Many in the local biking community would like to see a lane that physically separates them from both pedestrians and car traffic – a lane called a “cycle track.” For people who bike along Minnehaha, getting from point A to point B is a challenge. Nicole Nafziger knows firsthand how being so close to traffic can make for a scary experience when riding in the bike lane.
Minneapolis police and Crime Stoppers are asking for the public’s help in finding two men who allegedly robbed a taxi driver at gunpoint last weekend.
