With the change of season, and students headed back to school, Autumn is traditionally the deadliest time of year for pedestrians in Minnesota. To help make our Downtown safe, the Rochester Downtown Alliance (RDA) presents Heads Up! Pedestrian Safety Week beginning on Monday, September 10, 2018. The goal of this week long program is to increase safety for pedestrians within Downtown Rochester, but we also want to bring the community together for some fun activities!
Other fun activities for the week include, a People Friendly Driving presentation by Olmsted County Public Health and BikeMN at the University of Minnesota Rochester (UMR) and the Rochester Public Library, a crosswalk march and community picnic, and you may even spot some familiar faces helping you cross second street and first avenue southwest Monday – Friday!
