The public is invited to attend an open house that will be held on Thursday, September 20, 2012, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Sunrise Elementary School, 3800 Nickerson Avenue, Bismarck, ND. Citizens are invited to attend and provide input on existing and projected transportation plans and potential improvements. This will be the first of three Open Houses held for the study.
During the open house, there will be a short presentation at approximately 4:30 p.m. , after which the public will be able to discuss the project in an informal manner with staff and officials from the MPO, Burleigh County, the City of Bismarck, NDDOT, and the project consultant. Maps, drawings, visualizations and other pertinent information will be available for public inspection at the open house.
In March of 2012 the Bismarck-Mandan MPO along with the City of Bismarck and Burleigh County initiated a transportation study to determine short, mid, and long-term improvements to the rapidly growing 43rd Avenue Corridor, which is generally defined as extending from Butte Drive on the west to 80th Street on the east.
