I'm thinking of a city.....(see if you can guess it)
That has two streets that intersect which are the 'MacDonald-Carter Freeway' and the 'W.R. Allen Road'. What city is this?(I picked unique street names that I atleast never seen before to do narrow it down) No Cheating!

8. OK, I'm thinking of a city:
Edited on Sun Apr-18-04 08:49 AM by northwest
There's a big intersection of streets in this city known as 41st Street South and Minnesota Avenue. Try and guess it.

The thing is though, I'm gonna go to sleep for a few hours, so you'll have to just make a bunch of guesses until then. I need to get a few hours of sleep in. I'll tell you all the answer around Noonish.

11. I'll just make all my guesses now
St. Cloud, Duluth, Rochester, Owatonna, and Mankato. I just named some major cities that had roads coming out of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
