MnDOT seeks public input for statewide bicycle planning study
BAXTER — The public, local government officials and transportation supporters are invited to provide input for Minnesota’s statewide bicycle planning study at a statewide webinar discussion from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Wednesday. Webinar details and other meeting locations across the state will be posted at www.dot.state.mn.us/bike/study.html<http://www.dot.state.mn.us/bike/study.html>.
“Minnesota is often recognized as one of the top bicycle-friendly states in the country, and the best way to continue improving is to learn from constituents who use the highways, bike lanes and shoulders to bike,” said Tim Mitchell, MnDOT bicycle and pedestrian coordinator.
All feedback will help MnDOT improve and develop consistent policies and practices for including bicycle components, such as wide shoulders or bike lanes, on future highway and bridge construction projects. It also will help MnDOT develop a new electronic and printable statewide bicycle map. Future public comment opportunities will take place as the project moves forward.
The public also may submit written comments on the project website, email
firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Greta Alquist, MnDOT Office of Transit MS 315, 395 John Ireland Blvd., St. Paul, MN, 55155.
