Public Involvement

In September and October of 2007 Mn /DOT representatives reached out to federal, state, county, city and neighborhood groups through open houses, public meetings and this Web site to get input on their concerns and vision for the reconstruction of the I-35W bridge.

As plans for the new bridge progressed Mn/DOT representatives and the design-build contracting team continued to met with community leaders, affected agencies and the public.

Many decisions were made regarding all aspects of the rebuilding process based on the feedback we received.

Some of the state and local officials we met with include:

  • I-35W North Coalition -Area legislators, local officials and chamber board
    Aug. 29
  • 7 Corners Apartments on the West Bank - tenants association
  • Joint Committee: House and Senate Transportation Committees
