bike bridge open

The new bike bridge over Lyndale at 94 is open now. It looked like they were waiting for some railings to be fashioned and installed, but now the barriers are gone, and people are using it. Mostly. The idea is that if you’re coming from Loring Park and you want to go to Uptown or points around there, you turn left before crossing the onramp to 94 East. The bridge takes you up and along side of 94 and puts you out on Aldrich Avenue, just behind the parking lot for the Vision Loss Resource Center. This way you don’t have to cross the uncontrolled on-ramp for 94 eastbound at Lyndale, and play chicken with cars wanting to turn right onto the freeway.

It appears that some cyclists are using it, and some continue to cross on the east side of Lyndale, but hopefully as more people see others using it, they’ll start using it, too.
