Public input sought on Broadway improvements
The City of Minot is hosting a second virtual open house to provide information and collect public comments as part of the Broadway Corridor Study.
The virtual open house opened Monday and will run to May 17 at movingbroadway.com. Visitors to the site can review project documents, view corridor alternative overview videos, and submit comments.
There will also be live question and answer sessions on May 5 for Broadway south of 20th Avenue Southwest and May 6 for Broadway north of 20th Avenue Southwest. People must register in advance to participate in the live sessions by contacting Bethany.firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We asking for the public’s help in prioritizing and refining the options that have been developed,” said City Engineer Lance Meyer. “The options we’re presenting now do not lock us into any final design. The information we’re gathering will help us determine what the final design will look like when we reach the point of design and construction, which is years from now.”
The Broadway Corridor Study is a collaborative effort of the City of Minot, North Dakota Department of Transportation and a consultant. Alternatives have been developed that would address issues and concerns along the entire stretch of Broadway.
The first virtual public input meeting held last fall included more than 1,200 unique visitors and comments. The input received at the first public meeting was influential in guiding the alternatives developed and how they were analyzed.
