Public meeting

MnDOT held a public meeting on Aug. 9, 2023, in the Lincoln Park Community Center to discuss the pedestrian bridge project. MnDOT gathered information on concerns with the existing bridge. A visual quality committee has been formed and meets regularly to determine elements of the bridge aesthetics. Once there is a general consensus, MnDOT will host a second public meeting to gather feedback. At that time, materials will also be posted to this website to view when convenient.
