Parkway is a crosswalk. There are curb cuts on
both sides of the parkway, but there is no marking
or signage - making it, according to state law, not
a \'real\' crosswalk. Given the curvature of parkway
and the speed at which vehicles come careening
down Portland Avenue, it would be nice for pedestrians
to have \'safe\' place to cross West River
Parkway by marking the pavement and installing
Mike Schmidt, assistant superintendent for
operations for the Minneapolis Park and Recreation
Board said there are no plans for any additional
crosswalks or stop signs at the location.
\"Just because you have curb marks doesn\'t
mean you\'re going to have a crosswalk or signs,\"
A crosswalk request has not come to the Park
Board. \"I can\'t deal with a request that has not
come to the Park Board,\" Schmidt said.
