Mayor Carter Announces Ayd Mill Road To Be Resurfaced as a Complete Street
In his annual Budget Address, Mayor Melvin Carter announced a proposal to reduce Ayd Mill Road to just two lanes (one in each direction). This was the stated position of the Saint Paul City Council in a resolution passed in the early 2000s but never implemented. The plan is to keep the two lanes on the west side of the current roadway for car traffic and covert the two lanes on the east side into a bicycle and pedestrian path. This is something that is called for in the city's Bikeways Plan, its Comprehensive Plan and various other district council and area plans. It will save the city in long term plowing and road maintenance costs and, one day, we hope it will connect to a Minneapolis Midtown Greenway Extension. (See event on September 15, above). We urge everyone reading this to thank the mayor and call or email your city council member to let them know that you support this proposal. It is sure to draw opposition, so we need to turn out and support it.
