City of Crookston, Minn., Department of Transportation to Host Open House for Highway 2 Corridor Study – Grand Forks Herald

CROOKSTON, Minnesota – An open house to gather community input on the future of U.S. Highway 2 through downtown Crookston will be held at Crookston City Hall on Thursday, April 28 from 5 p.m. 30 to 7 p.m.

The City of Crookston, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, is conducting the study to assess existing conditions and potential improvements that could be made along Highway 2 in downtown Crookston.

The study also examines the future transportation and mobility needs of Highway 2 to create a safe, accessible and convenient corridor for pedestrians, cyclists and drivers. The intersection of North Broadway and Robert Street, where Highway 2 enters downtown Crookston, is where three pedestrians or cyclists have been hit by cars since 2008.

The city and MnDOT are seeking community input on draft road alternatives to understand what Highway 2 might look like in the future through downtown Crookston.

Representatives from the city, MnDOT and the SRF Consulting Group will be available to discuss the study and gather feedback on draft road alternatives. The open house will include a brief presentation and information panels will be posted so attendees can provide feedback and participate in discussions about the future of Highway 2.

SRF Consulting Group collects written comments by mail to SRF Consulting Group, 3701 Wayzata Boulevard, Suite 100, Minneapolis, MN 55416-3791 or by email to Britt Berner at [email protected]
