Bike to Work Day with Mayor Frey and MnDOT

MnDOT and the City of Minneapolis are hosting a bike tour of the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project to celebrate Bike to Work Day.

Join Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey and MnDOT Engineer Aaron Tag on your commute home and get an up-close and informative view of the project. Friday, May 17, 4 to 6pm, beginning at The Commons, 425 Portland Avenue S.

Riders will stop at Franklin Steele Park to learn about construction and get a good view of the I-35W/I-94 interchange followed by a stop at 24th Street to hear about the new pedestrian bridge, then a stop on the Midtown Greenway under I-35W to learn about the new Lake Street Transit Station, Orange Line and connection to the Midtown Greenway.

Tour schedule:
Registration begins at 4:00pm. All riders need to be registered and have their bikes safety checked by 4:30pm.
The tour begins at 4:30pm at The Commons in downtown Minneapolis and will end at 6:00pm at the intersection of I-35W and the Midtown Greenway.

This event is part of the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project between 43rd St. and 15th St. in Minneapolis.
