Potential solutions to share

In response to the community's input, the project team has an updated preliminary layout to share, which considers new alternatives such as roundabouts at 640th St. (hospital) and Harry Rich Dr.

The new concepts further improve access to Hwy 10 and address safety concerns as travelers enter the city from the west or east at high speeds. You may view the layout at City Hall (222 2nd Street SE) or download here:
