The Midtown Greenway Coalition launched a petition to get the city to re-pave the section of the Greenway they did this summer, citing poor quality of the original work. Direct quote from the petition: "The trail is worse now than before Minneapolis Public Works repaved it. Many people are now avoiding the trail altogether and/or biking in the pedestrian lane, which is smoother in some areas. This is dangerous to the public and a liability issue for the City of Minneapolis."
