First Avenue North And Tenth Street North Intersection. - Downtown West
Motorists oftern drop off and pick up passengers from the bus station. They stop their cars along First Avenue just short of 10th Street. Bikes have to go around to the left of the stopped car, and then ride into the lane of traffic to pass the stopped car. This creates a risk of collision with a motorist who is driving in that lane. It is inevitable that people need to and will stop to pick up friends and family at a bus station. Having a No Stopping or No Standing sign has proven to be ineffective. People violate it and I don't think any threat of more enforcement will be effective. I drive by that location at least 3 times per week and more often than not a car is stopped in the bike lane. I would suggest using the very wide sidewalk next to the bus station to construct a drop off lane next to the building. There is enough room to do it. Then bikes then could stay in the bike lane without having to use the motorist's lane.
600-698 N 4th St Minneapolis, MN 55401, USA - North Loop
There is currently a two way stop here and the uncontrolled traffic traveling on 6th ave is dangerous to walking pedestrians. There is a significant amount of walking traffic crossing the intersection between people walking to work, walking their dogs, or walking through the neighborhood for recreational purposes. It is very difficult to walk across the intersection with uncontrolled traffic flowing along 6th ave. This issue also poses a problem to drivers on 6th ave because they think it is a four way stop because of all the people walking around. This results in cars slowing down significantly or stopping often to the surprise of a driver behind that is more familiar with the intersection. Please make this a safer intersection!
Edgewater Drive At Cedar Ave S Minneapolis, MN - Diamond Lake
The traffic congestion at Lake Nokomis on Cedar Avenue is increasingly heavier each year. A roundabout might help this intersection. I know a study addressing this occurred in the past and was later discarded. I think now would be a good time to revisit this (or other fixes) for this very congested node.
