W 66th St Minneapolis, MN, 55435, USA - EdinaPlease add one "stop" sign to enable 1) northbound traffic on Normandale Rd to make a safe left turn on to 66th. This is unsafe as the view left is obstructed and in winter the snow banks make this a blind turn over the icy bridge 2) the pedestrian crossing over 66th at this junction is unsafe as east bound 66th traffic cannot see pedestrians bridge over Hwy 100. This is NOT a request for an all way stop.
Russell & Hazel Flagship Store 4388 France Ave S, Minneapolis, MN, 55410, USA - EdinaI'm referencing #5717741 in gathering info for pedestrian safety on France in the Morningside neighborhood. Last summer I was bumped from behind by a car turning west from France onto 44th Street while I was crossing northbound on that street. Not sure if driver was distracted or trying to lake a quick left to beat oncoming southbound traffic on France, but it was unnerving to say the least. Now I'm constantly trying to make eye contact with drivers before crossing any intersection in that area, but difficult to rely on that, of course. With the new condos, and more kids, I fear the problem can only get worse without some creative solutions. Also, to reference 4340-215 about a pedestrian light at 42 and France, much needed! As a longtime bus rider, crossing France can be dangerous but also can take forever! Somehow, the speeds on France have to be slowed between Excelsior and 44th.
Normandale Rd Minneapolis, MN, 55435, USA - EdinaCrosswalk signal isn’t working. All directions are stuck on “wait” and pushing button doesn’t trigger change in signal. It’s been like this for a couple weeks and we walk to young kids to daycare across this intersection. It is dangerous with traffic coming on and off highway 100. Intersection east side of overpass hwy 100 and 70th st
6401 Timber Rdg Minneapolis, MN, 55439, USA - Edina
Between 5:00pm and 6:00pm on weekdays there are vehicles making U-turns on McCauley Trail W in order to avoid waiting in the long line for a left turn from the eastbound exit to Gleason from 62. Within this timeframe there are usually around 40 vehicles that turn right from the exit onto Gleason and then right onto McCauley Trail W only to make a U-turn to get back on Gleason towards Vernon. There are near-misses every day at the intersection of McCauley and Gleason.
Recently, a vehicle turned on to Timber Ridge from McCauley Trail and attempted to make a U-Turn through my driveway at 6401 Timber Ridge, almost hitting my infant daughter and me, and tore out of the driveway back onto McCauley. Furthermore, my lawn along the frontage road has been run over multiple times.
I now need to block my driveway with flower planters so vehicles don't rip into my driveway in an effort to get back onto McCauley. Now, since the planters have been placed, the cars simply make U-turns in the middle of the street and run over the curbs adjacent to my home and the homes of my neighbors.
I don't know what can be done to prevent this from happening, I wish I could propose a solution, but the portion of the frontage road resembles a stock-car derby every weekday evening and somebody is going to end up getting hurt.
3113 West 60th Street Edina Mn 55410 - EdinaThe recent closure of the France ave bridge has rerouted a ridiculous amount of traffic down 60th Street. Cars are traveling in excess of 45 mph at times. Additional safety measures need to be taken by the city of Edina to ensure the safety of residents that live in this area. Steps include adding additional stop signs installing a traffic speed notification display. This is unacceptable & frankly unfair to residents that reside in this area of Edina. Please advise on next steps.

My 5 year old child was almost run over Monday April 15.
My child was holding my hand. We didn't dart out into the road. We were wearing bright colors. We waited at the corner for all cars to stop at the red light & for the walking light to turn green. We were practicing safe street crossing and purposely went to the corner. The light changed to red, we looked around and all cars were at a full stop. The walking signal turned green for us. We started walking across in the marked crosswalk. A single driver decided not to wait and bypassed to the right all the stopped cars to speed through the light to take a right turn. The driver did not even yield. They barely stopped for us (we were already in the middle of the crosswalk). The car proceeded to pass me, even after I put my hand out to say 'stop'.
Edina needs to do something. We have had so many incidents & near misses over the years. We now drive everywhere, when we should be able to safely walk or bike to local area shops. My kiddo, yours, anyone's could have ended up worse than just the skinned knee.
Please, can Edina put out a pedestrian safety law sign, and/or a 'No Turn On Red', and/or bright orange crossing guard flags on the Edina side corners of Sunnyside Rd/France Ave/44th St?
Thank you for working to make Edina for safe and pedestrian and community friendly.
W 42nd St & Grimes Ave S Minneapolis, MN, 55416, USA - Edina
42nd & Grimes is a busy intersection in mornings and particularly in the afternoons. This is exactly the time when kids are crossing the street to go to Weber Park after school.
I have watched repeatedly as cars slide through the stop signs, treating them as a yield sign. Over and over cars do not wait for kids to exit the crosswalk but instead drive around them. Several occasions there have been some near misses as a kid dropped something and turned back to pick it up and another tripped in the crosswalk. The cars did not wait, they drove around them while they were legally in the crosswalk. The kids were not going too slowly or playing in the street. The kids were abiding the law, the cars were not.
This is a huge safety concern. Kids & their families need to be able to safely use the crosswalk to go to and from the Weber Park without having a car drive in front or around them as they cross.
Please, can Edina put up some visual reminders for drivers: a MN Pedestrian Law sign, or blinking crosswalk, orange flags for kids to grab as they cross, a patrol, anything?
Thank you for your assistance in making our neighborhood safer for pedestrians.
6902–6932 France Ave S Edina 55435, United States - EdinaThere are no marked pedestrian crosswalks or stop bars for cars on France Ave at 69th St, Parklawn and Minnesota Dr.
W 77th St Minneapolis, MN, 55435, USA - EdinaIs there any information on how long the street/lane closure on 77th street over hwy 100 will be lasting? It is down right dangerous at rush hour. Cars are backed up to get off hwy 100, not many cars get thru on the green lights. People are trying to driving west when the west bound is closed. Would like to avoid the whole mess but I car pool with my husband who works at Seagate.
4239 Crocker Ave Minneapolis, MN, 55416, USA - EdinaStreet in front of our house is on a hill. Road is completely iced over and wet. I pulled my car out slowly and it spun 180 degrees and slid down the hill. We're trapped. Sand, please!
5520 Hansen Rd Edina 55436, United States - EdinaKids are driving 50MPH town Gleason and into Garden Park at all times of the day and night playing nerf wars. There are kids and dog and walkers all over this park and it is so unsafe. My daughter almost got run over on her bike from a reckless teen pulling into the parking lot going way too fast
Mn-62 E Minneapolis, MN, 55439, USA - EdinaEast bound exit from 62 on to Gleason Road. Left turn from exit on to Gleason is hazardous during during rush hour. The traffic on Gleason is heavy and initiating a left turn is very tricky. The traffic on the exit backs up. Also the left turn on the "service" road. I can't remember the name of it but it is parallel to the exit ramp.
