Open Streets University of Minnesota + Motley set for Sunday, Sept. 30
Opens Streets University of Minnesota + Motley takes place Sunday, Sept. 30 – the grand finale for the 2018 Open Streets Minneapolis season.
The event, set for 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will take place on 14th Avenue Southeast, University Avenue Southeast and Oak Street Southeast. This is the third Open Streets Minneapolis event held near the University of Minnesota campus. The streets will be closed to motorized traffic to give people a chance to walk, bike and roll in a car-free environment.
Staff from Public Works will have a booth to share information and collect input on the City’s commitment to Vision Zero and the development of the 10-year Transportation Action Plan. Visitors to the booth can take the Vision Zero pledge, share ideas on how to make our streets safer, and provide input on how they use transportation options in the city.
The City of Minneapolis and Our Streets Minneapolis are also collaborating on a social media campaign called #WeWalkMpls to highlight the stories of residents of all ages and backgrounds who choose to walk for commuting and a primary way to get around the city. Our Streets Minneapolis will be collecting stories from walkers during the event. Share your walking stories by using the hashtag #WeWalkMpls on social media.
