  • 1723-1749 Hennepin Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Lowry Hill East
    The stretch of Lyndale in front of the Walker is full of potholes. I don't think my car can handle another drive down this road.
  • 1940 Hennepin Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Lowry Hill East
    The entrance ramp to 94E from Hennepin Ave is riddled with potholes, and they're getting worse.
  • 2000-2198 S Lyndale Ave Minneapolis, MN 55405, USA - Lowry Hill East
    It is practically more hole than road, with dozens of potholes in one intersection.
  • 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!
  • S Lyndale Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Lowry Hill East
    A giant pothole right in front of the Walker almost took out two of my tires!!
  • Humboldt Av S & Midtown Greenway - East Isles
    This is an all way stop intersection at Humboldt Av S & Midtown Greenway & 90%+ of the bicyclists run right through the Midtown Greenway stop signs. How can cyclists expect drivers to respect them when they show a lack of respect like this?
  • Washington Ave & 3rd Ave North Minneapolis, MN - Downtown West
    The crosswalks are not painted/marked well if at all. Suburban traffic from 394 dumps into this intersection from a exit, making it especially dangerous for pedestrians crossing. I have contacted the CIty of Minneapolis several times via phone and email and the intersection is still not/poorly marked. Please fix this ASAP. Many pedestrians, children, pets and those with disabilities use this crosswalk and it simply frightening to cross.
  • 1697 S Lyndale Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Minneapolis
    All lanes are bad, but especially the far left lane, on the approach to Vineland & 15th Ave interesection. More potholes than I can count!
  • 1925 Hennepin Ave Minneapolis, MN 55403, USA - Lowry Hill East
    After the light at Hennepin and Franklin, the approach to the ramp as you leave Hennepin is better, but still needs help. There are so many fills, it is horribly bumpy and hard on the car's shocks. Is there any way to level off the surface with a wider fill?
  • 901-999 W 46th St Minneapolis, MN 55419, USA - Lynnhurst
    call betsy hodges and mayor rybak - road is in such bad shape it should be avoided - suspension and muffler at risk
  • 300-398 East 15th Street Minneapolis, MN 55404, USA - Minneapolis
    Metro Transit buses park in the westbound bike lane on 15th Street on the bridge over 35W. As a result, cycling on the bridge is incredibly dangerous. (The bike lane exists only on the bridge, presumably to make it possible to cycle across it safely at rush hour. Unfortunately, there's no safety benefit because there is inevitably a bus there at rush hour.)
