2390b_resized_b_clssic.jpgJosh Sprague grew up near the Cedar Lake Trail, where walking and biking were a natural part of life. In 2006, he moved to Edina. He loved his new neighborhood except for one thing: It was harrowing for him and his young children to cross 70th Street on the way to the local park.

“That’s what got me involved in the community,” Sprague explains, “and propelled me to the city council. Seventieth Street was like the wild, wild west before we did something about it.”

This was accomplished with a road diet — converting the four-lane street to three lanes with alternating left turn lanes to keep traffic moving smoothly. Bike lanes were also added, not only to provide better access for two-wheel travelers but to calm vehicle traffic, making it simpler and safer for Sprague, his four kids, and everyone else in the neighborhood to walk.      (click the above title for the full story)
