The Bismarck-Mandan MPO will be holding a public meeting for the I-94 Corridor Study and North Mandan Sub Area Study combined on Wednesday, March 6, 2013, from 5pm to 7pm at the Mandan Middle School, 2901 12th Avenue NW, Mandan, ND.
The I-94 Corridor Study will identify and address current and future transportation issues along approximately 17 miles of I-94 from ND Highway 25 in Morton County to 80th Street NE in Burleigh County. The I-94 Corridor Study was initiated to address concerns of increasing traffic volumes and projected increases to traffic volumes along this stretch of roadway. At the end of the study in November 2013, the study team will provide recommendations for improvements to I-94 and its interchanges/cross streets.
The North Mandan Sub Area Study is also being pursued to address existing and projected transportation needs in portions of Mandan and Morton County north of I-94. This will be the second public meeting associated with the North Mandan Sub Area Study. At the end of the study in the Spring of 2013, recommendations will be provided to improve identified transportation issues.
As these two studies impact each other on the west side of the Missouri River, a coordinated public meeting will be held to brief the public on existing traffic conditions and traffic analysis and to gather input on information and ideas developed to date.
The meeting will be conducted primarily as on open house with staff available to discuss work that has been completed to date. There will be a presentation at 5:30 pm, after which the informal discussion can continue with staff and officials from the respective governing agencies and consultant team. Information and graphics will be displayed outlining work done to date. No decisions have been made at this time. Your input at this stage of the study is invaluable.
