Here is part 4 of my 4 part series on commuting to downtown Minneapolis from Plymouth and Medina along Highway 55. This 90 second clips is from the Highway 55 and Northwest Blvd/Xenium Lane intersection. Traffic seems lighter than normal. Northwest Blvd. is generally very crowded and people use that route to head south from the northern end of Plymouth. They drive to Highway 55 as it’s a great feeder to Highways 169 or 100 or to take it straight in to downtown Minneapolis. In the morning the lights are timed to allow traffic to move quickly. At some point around 8:30 or 9am the timing of the lights are changed to allow more traffic to cross Highway 55 rather than continue to travel along Highway 55. This just reflects the change in drivers on the roads at that hour. By then the commute is over and the roads are being used by people driving to and from the various shopping areas.
