Bike share was easy for New York City to love in the abstract. It was not about adding bike lanes at the expense of something else; it was about sharing something that did not yet exist.
Downtown Minneapolis is mostly walled off, from residential neighborhoods to the south and west that might other wise walk or bike to work, by I-94. This study looks into what can be done about it.

While there are a few pedestrian overpasses, they are hard to access with stairs and some have even been torn down in recent years, significantly lengthening walking or biking times. Detailed looks are had at a few key locations that could benefit from new use of the freeway’s air rights.
