I need to start a new post as the last one has become quite long.


  • This morning a meeting was held for area neighborhoods, University of Minnesota, elected officials and city/state/county departments. I was sent an email from one of the groups in attendance with a few things to note:
    • This weekend the Stone Arch Bridge and the 10th Ave Bridge will both stay closed.
    • The bridges are still being inspected. The visit from the President tomorrow would have required another security sweep so closed they stay.
    • Our police officers are on 12 hour shifts due to the disaster, but they are keeping up with regular patrols.
    • If you notice problems, call 311.
    • Officials are looking for a way to communicate with area residents about the traffic problems. As I experienced yesterday the shortcuts locals know about are being discovered by those driving to the area. More on that will follow early next week.
