George Floyd Square- take 2

Minneapolis city crew works to reopen 38th and Chicago for traffic

For the second time in less than a week, Minneapolis city crews are trying to reopen the area around 38th Street and Chicago Avenue to traffic early Tuesday morning. 

Minneapolis city crews, at around 4:50 a.m., were removing items from George Floyd Square in an attempt to reopen the intersection to traffic. Once crews were done removing items, they left the area. 

Last Thursday, 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS was at 38th and Chicago as crews and a community group removed concrete barriers blocking off the square, but activists quickly moved in after and blocked off the roads again with makeshift barriers.

I believe if the city thought everyone was on board and there would be no push back they wouldn't do this before sunrise.
