A safer ride to school


It’s that time in the legislative session when proposals for the state bonding bill pour in. The Minnesota legislature is considering borrowing $775 million for state infrastructure work, maintenance, and research for future projects. It’s also an opportunity to redesign infrastructure at a neighborhood level.

The Bicycle Alliance of Minnesota, policy makers, and city planners gathered at the capitol to announce proposals for a $3 million Safe Routes to School program that would make it safer to get to class in Minnesota school districts on two wheels.
