Evaluate the Hwy 3 corridor from 160 St. in Rosemount to 2nd St. in Farmington in order to identify possible improvements to improve safety, on Hwy 3 for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. In order to help develop an access management plan to serve as guidance for the County, Cities, MnDOT, Metropolitan Council, landowners, and developers on desired access changes and future access locations in the corridor. This can be achieved by seeking public feedback that will take into consideration how the highway works in the regional road network, the planned growth of the community, and the need for an adequate supporting road network to support development.
