On June 27, over 130 people enjoyed free ice cream on Lake Street as they learned about the benefits of the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project. La Michoacana Purepecha, a popular ice cream shop, hosted MnDOT, the City of Minneapolis, Metro Transit, Lake Street Council and the Central Neighborhood for a fun and informative open house.
Participants learned about the future Lake Street Transit Station at 35W, Orange Line connection and Metro B Line project that will traverse Lake Street. They met the artist who will be installing public art at the bike/pedestrian connection between the new transit station and the Midtown Greenway and provided design input and interacted with neighborhood leaders. After taking a brief survey, families enjoyed ice cream on a beautiful summer evening.
