Summary of work

The goal of this study is to jump start the MnDOT scoping process for a future bridge project on the 5th Avenue West Bridge over I-35. It will start the public engagement process by identifying users and stakeholders within the project area and gathering initial viewpoints on the functionality and shortcomings of the current structure. This study will then identify several possible alternatives based on stakeholder/public input and preliminary engineering and traffic modeling/analysis.
