MnDOT is hosting a public meeting about its upcoming reconstruction project on Highway 23 (also known as Grand Avenue), from Interstate-35 to Becks Road. The two-year-long project will include new driving surfaces, storm sewer and sidewalk improvements, enhanced pedestrian crossings and additional bus stops.
The meeting will address the recommendations from the Metropolitan Interstate Council’s (MIC’s) recent Highway 23/Grand Ave Corridor Study as well as specific improvements that have been funded by a new Corridor Investment Management Strategy (CIMS) Grant. Some intersections onto Grand Avenue will be consolidated, relocated or closed to increase safety.
Representatives from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the city of Duluth will be available to answer questions, provide information on the construction schedule, the CIMS elements and other details about the project.
Participants at the meeting will be able to ask questions and provide feedback about both the study recommendations and the roadway reconstruction project.
If you have questions or cannot attend the meeting, please call Derek Fredrickson, MnDOT Project Manager, at 218-725-2744.
