Intersections not controlled by regulatory signs are required to follow the rules established by Minnesota State Statute. See also page 2B-7 of the MNMUTCD.
The purpose of the on-street parking policy is to enhance the safety of drivers and pedestrians, as well as to allow for effective parking capacities at times when parking is in high demand. Refer to the City's On-Street Parking Control Policy (PDF) for further information.
Speed limits are set by Minnesota State Statute. Edina is classified as an urban district and the speed limit for urban districts is 30 mph unless otherwise specified. The Minnesota State Statute also allows the road authority (City Council) to adopt a 25-mile-per-hour (mph) speed limit for its residential roadways.

School crossings or school zones
Number of pedestrian crossings

Young, elderly, or disabled pedestrian use
