A bicyclist was struck and pinned beneath a car Tuesday morning just south of Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis, at an intersection neighbors have complained about for decades. The bicyclist was taken to a hospital with noncritical injuries. The driver stopped and cooperated with police. The crash is under investigation, said Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder. Neighbors say little has been done to address their safety concerns about the junction of Cedar Avenue, E.
Local officials blame inaction on a mire of overlapping jurisdictions and divided responsibility. Cedar Avenue is a county road, E. It's been a terrible problem intersection for decades," said Park Commissioner Steffanie Musich. Stephanie Simione, who lived near the intersection for 13 years, said her late husband suffered a concussion from a hit-and-run there more than a decade ago. Dozens of residents e-mailed pleas for something to be done during public engagement around the Park Board's Nokomis-Hiawatha Master Plan, which was adopted in It is often one in 10 drivers.
My year-old daughter was also 'tapped' by a car while biking through that intersection," yet another resident wrote. He organized town halls about it in March and December at a nearby church. The city installed a radar speed and the county placed bollards along Cedar Avenue as a result, but most of the bollards were mowed down by a snowplow this past winter.
There's disagreement over whether the guilty plow belonged to the county or Minnesota Department of Transportation. This is an ongoing process," said Schroeder, who promised a more permanent solution. But a permanent change to the intersection would require full reconstruction, said Colin Cox, the county's transportation spokesman. Siegel said neighbors have floated every solution they could think of over the years, including timing the traffic lights differently, replacing the lights with stop s in all directions, installing a roundabout and removing the intersection altogether. Hundreds of people show up for the meeting.
Everybody gives their input. They vote on stuff. And then nothing happens," he said. That's society, I guess.
