ALEXANDRIA — The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the city of Alexandria are hosting an open house on Tuesday, May 23, from 5:30-7:30 p.m., to discuss the two current pedestrian studies on Highway 29, from Eighth Avenue to 18th Avenue, and on Third Avenue in Alexandria.
The event will be held at the Douglas County Public Works Building, 526 Willow Drive in Alexandria. A formal presentation is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m.
The studies will look at pedestrian safety and identify connections for people walking, biking and rolling along Highway 29. MnDOT and city staff, along with the consultant, are currently seeking feedback from the public on community goals for the corridor.
Everyone is welcome to attend the open house to learn more about the study. Representatives of the project team will be available to discuss details and gather comments on the design alternatives of the corridor.
Information board will be set up to allow attendees the opportunity to provide input and participate in discussions specific to Highway 29.
