Get around

Starting in the west, the major north-south arteries are Penn Avenue, Lyndale Avenue, Nicollet Avenue, Portland Avenue, and 12th Avenue. There are two major east-west arteries in Richfield. 66th Street cuts across the north side of Richfield, linking with Southdale Mall in Edina to the west and Highway 77 to the east (adjacent to Cedar Point Commons, a major strip mall development anchored by a Super Target and a Home Depot). Cutting across the south side of town is 76th/77th Street, which runs close to Interstate 494 and acts as an alternative to it. Specifically, traffic runs along 76th Street from Centennial Lakes in Edina until just east of Interstate 35W, where traffic jogs one block south to 77th Street, which eventually dead-ends at Cedar Avenue (a street that effectively acts as a service road for Highway 77).

Sidewalks are found on major streets; thoroughfares with less traffic like 12th Avenue, Bloomington Avenue, and 70th Street only have them on one side of the street. Non-major residential streets don't have sidewalks at all.
