Road to Bloomington Ferry Bridge now plowed

Posted by Doug Shidell, January 25th, 2009

Amazing what a little legwork and a plow can do for winter bike commuters. Jeff Hall, best known for his mountain bike prowess, made some phone calls and arranged for a “Special use permit” for the two mile road leading from Hwy 101 on the south side of the Minnesota River to the Blommington Ferry Bridge. With that permit, fellow cyclist Tom Cory has access to plow the snow off that road using his own truck and plow. The nearly impassable road is now free of snow and ready for bike travel. Who knew that this option was even available? Congratulations and a thousand thanks to Jeff and Tom.
