After Heavy Snows, Minneapolis Snow Removal Solutions Get Creative

What do you do when there’s snow and so many parked cars that it begins to make the streets too narrow and dangerous? In Minneapolis, the answer is elegant. Implement a snow emergency law that only allows parking on one side of the street. 

And then there’s this story from the Star Tribune, too. If snow blocks you’re sidewalk, just dig a tunnel 🙂

Why does it matter in Minot? We’ve had our own struggles with snow removal, specifically the sidewalk kind. And we need to always be on the lookout for good ideas from other places to copy.
