Before they add more parking, maybe they can alleviate some of the traffic backups. 50th eastbound at peak times---backed up past Wooddale ave. Pretty brutal. Some good humor taken from this story. 'Neighborhood' feel. In Edina? That's funny.

This story shows one of the big problems of more and more cars- a lack of parking. And what is always the answer? Add more, expensive, high rise parking ramps. Yea, that may work for awhile. Until we have even more traffic and those lots fill up. Instead, we should be adding and encouraging alternative transportation. More bike lanes, rail, express bus lanes, etc. I know people will complain about the costs of light rail. But, in the long run it will be less expensive than adding parking lots to the sky, and more car lanes forever.
