Open House Held for Transportation Plans

Posted: Updated:

Local officials are mapping out the future of Minot's transportation system, and they're looking for the public's input to help guide the plan.

That's why the 2nd of three open houses took place tonight to gain insight from Minot residents on the city's long-range Minot Transportation Plan for year 2035.

Tonight, information gathered through a study was laid out before those at the meeting.

It included information on future growth, how future roadways can accommodate traffic patterns, and potential project costs.

After it was presented, the floor was opened for residents to weigh in on the plans--a discussion that one city official says is important to the project.

(Lance Meyer, Minot City Engineer)"They help us understand what maybe specific neighborhood issues are....things that won't show up in a model. You know, like 'In the morning from 7:30 to 8:00, I cannot make a left turn out of this neighborhood.' Okay, well that's not going to show up in a model. Those are things that only the public can provide us."

The third open house will be held this summer--a date hasn't been set at this time.

In the meantime, you can visit the web address transplan2035.minotnd.org to view the plans.

Written comments are being accepted through May 16th--you can send those to the SRF Consulting Group at 1105 16th St. SW, Minot, ND 58701.
