Lyndale Ave South

is a vibrant street in South Minneapolis that many local residents and businesses call home. At Open Streets Lyndale we bring 50,000+ people out to bike, walk, roll and play on a street where folks typically would be driving. Yet on a typical day, Lyndale Avenue South isn't an easy, comfortable place to get around without a car. In fact, three out of the 10 most dangerous intersections in Minneapolis are on Lyndale. Given Lyndale's position as a street that connects neighborhoods, schools, parks, and businesses, we must make it a street that puts people first.
