Main Ave Road Diet Public Info Meeting
June 29, 2016 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Main Ave. Road Diet Demonstration Project public information meeting:
June 29, 5:30pm (Wednesday)
Bismarck Public Library- Meeting Room A
515 N 5th St– Bismarck
Join the Downtowners and City of Bismarck for a public information meeting regarding the Main Ave Road Diet Demonstration Project.
This public information meeting for the Main Ave Road Diet Demonstration Project is intended to inform and educate citizens and motorists– as well as pedestrians about what they can expect on Main Avenue with the road improvements.
**A trial run of the new configuration will run from Washington to 6th St for the bulk of the summer. The new configuration, which is a part of the Downtown Sub-Area Study plan, changes the Main Ave roadway from 4 lanes with no dedicated turn lane– to 3 lanes with a dedicated left turn lane. Parking will remain unchanged. The new configuration is meant to improve safety by reducing accident frequency and severity, offer safer and more frequent left turns, and improve the pedestrian environment near the roadway. The demonstration project will be monitored by the City of Bismarck, SRF Consulting: Engineering, and we’re asking for your feedback throughout the summer.
Hope to see you at the meeting! No RSVP necessary–
