MPRB to Vote on Extending Parkway Closures to June 7

Currently the MPRB maintains 21 lane miles of parkways and roads closed to motor vehicles and opened to pedestrians, including Lake Harriet and parts of Bde Maka Ska Parkways (MPRB Road Closures page).

At its May 6 meeting, MPRB Commissioners will consider a resolution granting MPRB Superintendent Al Bangoura the spending authority needed to keep parkways closed to motor vehicles and open to pedestrians through Sunday, June 7. To share your thoughts on this issue, you can:

  • Email District 6 Board Commissioner Brad Bourn,
  • Submit comments to be read aloud at the May 6 board meeting. These comments should be sent to the Secretary to the Board at before 3:30 pm on the day of the meeting and should be limited to approximately 200 words.
