Open house for Kennedy Bridge Planning Study set for July 17

Meetings to be held in East Grand Forks, Minn. and Grand Forks, N.D.

BEMIDJI, Minn. – The public is invited to ask questions and provide comments about the Kennedy Bridge Planning Study at public listening sessions on Wednesday, July 17, from 5:00 – 7:30 p.m., at the East Grand Forks Campbell Library (Tech Room), 422 Fourth Street NW, East Grand Forks, Minn. and Grand Forks City Hall (Council Chambers), 255 North Fourth Street, Grand Forks, N.D.

The open house includes two short presentations, at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m., and residents can review project materials and speak one-on-one with members of the project team, including the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the North Dakota Department of Transportation. Residents are encouraged to attend and learn about the project, discuss issues, and provide comments in an informal setting. 

The Highway 2 Kennedy Bridge over the Red River is being evaluated to determine a long-term plan for maintaining this important crossing. A range of options are being considered and input from residents will be used to help define the objectives and potential impacts of the project by understanding the needs of its users.
