Winter Conditions Study Volunteer Sign Up

The City of Minneapolis is seeking volunteers to participate in the Bicycle and Pedestrian Winter Conditions Study Pilot. As part of a larger bicycle and pedestrian winter maintenance research project, the City is conducting a field study to document the winter conditions of our bicycle and pedestrian facilities. We need gracious volunteers such as yourself to help us document the snow and ice on our streets, sidewalks and trails. Volunteers will sign up to conduct 5-minute observations at locations of their choosing (pick one on your commute!) throughout the winter. This form will provide you with everything you need to know about volunteering before giving you the opportunity to sign up.

If you are interested in volunteering, please complete this form. It will take about 10 minutes and includes:

• An introduction to the study
• Overview of volunteer tasks and responsibilities
• Volunteer sign up

UPDATE: Only a few volunteer spots at a handful of locations remain. Check out the map of remaining locations before signing up here:
