OPEN STREETS MINNEAPOLIS 2017 – EAST LAKE STREET STYLE

No turning back at Cedar and Lake TW

Open Streets Minneapolis in year 6 brings together community groups and local businesses to temporarily close major thoroughfares to car traffic, and open them up for people walking, biking, skating, and playing.  Open Streets gives residents an opportunity to explore their neighborhood and local businesses in a safe, fun, and family-friendly way. It encourages the use of active transportation and healthy living, and has a goal of giving residents an opportunity to rethink our streets as public space.

Open Streets events take place in all quadrants of the City and Downtown and is an initiative of Our Streets Mpls. (formerly the Mpls. Bicycle Coalition), presented by the Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of MN & co-sponsored by the City of Mpls.

OPEN STREETS happened on East Lake Street July 23, 11 AM to 5PM from Elliot Avenue to Minnehaha Avenue and down Minnehaha.  If you were among the hundreds walking,   biking, or skateboarding, you may have seen some of these views pictured below amongst thousands of other scenes without vehicular traffic on Lake Street—The Great Street—same as State Highway #7.
