Despite the support of the LaCrosse Area Planning Committe and local cycling organizations for pedestrian lanes, a new, 100-year-lifespan bridge linking the Minnesota and Wisconsin via Interstate 90 will be built for motor vehicle access only. La Crescent’s Planning Commission argues that Mn/DOT has not been forthcoming about the project or receptive to other solutions, but the department counters that additional lanes are not feasible, due to cost, environmental impacts, aesthetics, and safety concerns on the span. Should Minnesotans be able to make a literal run for Sunday booze and illegal fireworks?
