Traffic Information back to top

There are twelve main roadways in the Twin Cities that can be used to connect to other popular Minnesota destinations. When arriving at the Minneapolis Saint Paul Airport you can take either Interstate 35W and 94 are to head into downtown Minneapolis. Both interstates will connect you to the I-494/694 beltway around the metro area. The main I-35 freeway is split into two routes, I-35W which navigates around Minneapolis and I-35E which cuts through nearby St. Paul. You can stay updated on delays and accidents through the Minnesota 511 app or other traffic apps that can provide alternative routes.

The city streets of Minneapolis are laid out in a grid system and the city is divided into four quadrants: North, South, Northeast and Southeast. Minneapolis also uses a rather unique multi-colored street signs system that formerly indicate the priority of plowing during winter storms. Nowadays they designate certain kinds of streets with blue signs indicating Snow Emergency Routes and dark green signs indicate scenic parkways that ring around the city and the lakes. Rust-colored signs are for streets that primarily run east-west while light green signs are for roads running primarily north-south.

The larger of the two Twin Cities, Minneapolis is home to a vibrant urban core whose diverse districts offer up a plethora of culture and entertainment. Part of its charm is of course, thanks to the legendary artist Prince who was born and raised in Minneapolis and pioneered the so-called Minnesota Sound. When you aren't browsing the record stores or checking out the food scene you can see amazing works of art at two world class institutions, Minneapolis Institute of Arts the Walker Art Center. The latter also hosts the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden, the largest urban sculpture garden in the US, featuring works by iconic artists like Claes Oldenburg, Richard Serra, and Louise Bourgeois. If you want to get outside you have your choice of parks and lakes to explore.
