Funky pedestrian underpass

  1. Kevin says:

    Looks like you are entering a 1960s bomb shelter!

  2. Will says:

    My first thought when I seen this picture was an old Cold War bomb shelter.

  3. Deb says:

    Okay even though I’m from New York, I’d be afraid to walk through that thing! One might get mugged! lol ;))

  4. Karen Too says:

    How convenient that there is a handy law firm right across the street, and it specializes in personal injury.

  5. Lisa S. says:

    it’s not as ugly as it might be if you tried to cross that street without the tunnel, granted a bit of paint and a well placed planter would definately make it purtier :)

  6. Kimmy says:

    Something tells me it needs a bunch of smelly trees.

  7. Audrey says:

    What the heck is it!?!?!?!

  8. Dave says:

    Looks like you might need an armed guard before entering. :)

  9. Nicole says:

    I was watching “it” five minutes before I saw this pic. enough said.

  10. Candace W says:

    Well … it doesn’t look like the most inviting place … but I’m sure it beats the heck out of trying to cross that street any other way! Keep on walking Matt! You’re awesome!

  11. Jay says:

    I’ve never noticed that before! I’ve gone by this area a numbers of time! I’ll have to look for it again when I am in Red Wing.

  12. Le Roy Chandler says:

    While living near Guadalajara, MX I used these to ride the train/cross the streets. Of course they looked a little more inviting than this one.

  13. Bruce says:

    Just a bit of history. That is the head of a tunnel. It had an enclosure around the top a decade ago. It was sawed off, presumably so that everything in the tunnel would be visible from the outside. The stairwell can be seen all the way down from the platform. The rest of the tunnel can be seen from the other end (near the law office). There is a geocache down there, but I’m not going to tell you where.

  14. Marylou says:

    a nit creepy against the blue sky backdrop… i’d rather dodge the cars

  15. Amanda MN says:

    Sweet! Looks like an adventure!

  16. Chris says:

    I bet that the Law Firm “set up shop” before the Pedestrian X-ing was made….. Easy Money
