Transportation Bill Includes Funding for Hwy 7 Corridor Study

Thanks to the efforts of Sen. Morrison and Rep. Acomb and Myers, the Legislature included $750,000 in the transportation bill for MNDoT to complete a corridor study of Hwy 7 from I-494 to the western boundary of Hennepin County. The study will consider solutions to improve safety, access management, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, ADA enhancements, signage, lighting and signals along the corridor.  The results of the study will inform future construction and improvement projects along the highway.  No timeline for completion of the study has been identified but watch the City’s website for updates.
