Traffic Calming Via Mural

KSTP Mural Painted on Mpls. Street to Help Slow Traffic :

"In an attempt to make a busy intersection safer, a Minneapolis neighborhood used the street as their canvas.

Sunday the Corcoran Neighborhood Organization, or CNO, painted a mural onto the pavement at East 34th Street and 19th Avenue South with help from more than 100 volunteers.

The goal is to highlight the busy intersection so drivers see it and slow down. The intersection is a concern because it's used by kids headed to Corcoran Park."
