Open house in Cologne will present final design for Hwy 212/284/County Road 53 intersection


ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Area residents, commuters and business owners are invited to an open house to present the final design for a 2012 project that will convert the Highway 212/Highway 284/County Road 53 intersection in Cologne to a 3/4 intersection with U-turns.

The final design will improve safety at the intersection while maintaining mobility for both regional and local traffic. Similar intersections have been installed successfully in Willmar, Minnesota and in other states. The Cologne design also includes elements that address local concerns raised during an extensive public involvement process.

The open house will be held at Cologne Community Center, 1211 Village Parkway, Wed., Feb. 22 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The project’s layout and design and other displays will be available for viewing throughout the open house, and attendees will be able to get questions answered directly from project representatives and local officials. No formal presentation is planned.
