This is a new project added by the Community Council

Project scope

Begin multi-phase design and construction project to reduce speeds and traffic volutmes, improve air quality, and add pedestrian crossings from International Airport Road to Northern Lights Boulevard. Within 6 years, Minnesota should meet the Federal Department of Transportation guidelines for Urban Arterial.

Project need

Pedestrian safety is the primary concern. Neighborhood connectivity in a mixed-use part of town on the verge of revitalization should be driving this project. Minnesota is currently a freeway that divides the neighborhood. Any project that would increase traffic volume or speed would make the neighborhood less safe.

Project status

This need is pending review by MOA
