Hwy 2 Crookston corridor study to present recommendations to Crookston City Council Sept. 12

BEMIDJI, Minn. – The City of Crookston, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), is conducting a corridor study to evaluate existing conditions and potential improvements that could be made along Hwy 2 (Broadway and Main Street) in downtown Crookston. The presentation will be held during the scheduled City Council Meeting on Monday, Sept. 12, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. The meeting is located at Crookston City Hall, 124 N Broadway, Crookston, MN 56716

A live stream of the meeting can be accessed at www.youtube.com/c/cityofcrookstonchannel

The City of Crookston, MnDOT, and SRF Consulting Group will present the recommended roadway alternative and associated improvements to Hwy 2 and show how the corridor could look in the future through downtown Crookston. The study will also examine the future transportation and mobility needs of Hwy 2 to create a corridor for people walking, bicycling, and driving that is safe, accessible, and convenient.

The study includes a Community Review Panel which represents business owners, motorists, residents, bicycle, pedestrians, transit economic development, emergency response, planning, safety, engineering and local government representatives. The panel has been meeting for the study since December 2021. Members have helped the City of Crookston ensure that community values are represented in the development and evaluation of project alternatives, while fostering conversations within the community.
