The intent of the Northeast Bismarck Subarea Study is to develop a more detailed plan for future investment in transportation infrastructure in the Northeast Bismarck Subarea. The Study will result in the following features:
Traffic operations and access management plan for key corridors in the NE Subarea (Centennial Road, Century Avenue, 71st Avenue, 66th Street, and 80th Street).
Review of FHWA Interstate Justification Report (IJR) criteria relative to the planned 66th Street/Interstate 94 interchange.
Roadway development concepts for all major arterials within the subarea.
Implementation plan with recommended short-term, mid-term, and long-term improvements for all major arterials within the subarea.
Preliminary information regarding the development of the Northeast Bismarck Subarea Study will be available for review and comment at the meeting. More information regarding the study is available online at the Project Webpage.
