33rd and Minneapolis

The intersection of Minneapolis Avenue S and 33rd Ave S is the only uncontrolled intersection in Seward, the only one in Ward 2, and one of the last 10 or so uncontrolled intersections in the whole city. It's a skewed four-way (because Minneapolis is at an angle to the grid) with one one-way leg.

We've heard from at least one resident about this intersection over the years. It's confusing, and that confusion could contribute to accidents.

Public Works has been putting stop signs up at uncontrolled intersections in Minneapolis since 2004. 33rd and Minneapolis is one of the last. They will be making a recommendation to me about how to signalize this intersection within the next two months. I look forward to working with Seward to come up with a solution that works for everyone.
