On Thursday, August 19th, Minneapolis Public Works will host a public meeting to present a draft proposal for the Southern Bike Connection. This project includes a bicycle boulevard and on-street bike lanes. The meeting will be held at 6:30 pm at the Stewart Park Rec Center (2700 12th Ave S).
The meeting will discuss:
