Description

Minnesota Monthly investigated the numerous accidents that have occurred at the Highway 252-85th Avenue intersection, including the death of 11 year-old, Kara Kavanagh, as she crossed the street to get to McDonalds. "According to Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDOT) records from the past four years, at least 80 serious accidents have occurred there during the same period- nearly one every two weeks." City officials and MNDOT argue about who to blame for the staggering number of accidents in this area. Residents of the area are upset as they were told a pedestrian bridge or underpass tunnel would be built years ago. However, due to a lack of financial planning, the project was never built. Reporter John Rosengren continues to examine the efforts made to improve this intersection.
