Update - Dr. M.L.King Jr. St. N. Redesign Project
City Transportation staff are meeting with residents and businesses in July to finalize the Dr. M.L. King Jr. St. N. redesign plan between 4th and 30th Aves. N., taking into account current and future transportation needs, economic development and safety goals. Following community meetings in November 2017-June, a concept involving turning one of five traffic lanes into a bicycle lane in each direction and adding several crosswalks has emerged as the preferred alternative. This proposal is based on transportation data and community feedback. Transportation staff will continue talking with and receiving feedback from citizens and businesses over the coming weeks, which could result in changes to the current proposed plan. A final decision on design is expected in early August. Construction is anticipated to begin later this summer with expected completion in late 2018. Read more.
