Broadway corridor study gathering public input

The City of Minot has begun the next phase of its Broadway corridor study by seeking public input on issues and concerns with the busiest roadway in the community.

City Engineer Lance Meyer presented information about the ongoing study to the City Council on Oct. 19. The Council approved in April 2019 funding the Broadway study through the North Dakota Department of Transportation.

“We want to study Broadway from the City line to the City line,” Meyer told Council members. “What we’re really looking for now is input from the public on what their concerns are and where they see issues because it helps us as engineers and planners design a better corridor.”

Anyone who wants to offer concerns or ask questions about Broadway can do so by logging on to movingbroadway.com, a website created to collect public input. Anyone can also submit suggestions or ask questions through email at Bethany.brandt-sargent@kljeng.com or by calling 701-232-5353.

Traditionally, a public open house would be held to gather additional input on potential resolutions to issues on Broadway. But due to ongoing COVID-19 concerns, that open house is being held virtually.

“We would encourage anyone that has concerns or issues related to Broadway to use one of these methods to share their information with us,” Meyer said. “We want and need public input to design the best corridor possible heading into the future.”

In the past year, much work has been done to create potential solutions to concerns about Broadway, including:

  • Reviewing existing traffic conditions
  • Reviewing current access points
  • Compiling data on accidents over the last 5 years
  • Studying constraints regarding pedestrian and cyclist use of the Broadway corridor
  • Studying transit challenges

“The primary goal, or at least one of them, is to study the segment from 20th Avenue all the way south because that is the next phase of Broadway that is due for reconstruction,” Meyer said. “One of the things you want to do is to look at what traffic will be like 20 years from now. You want to look at the future and model improvements based on those projections.”
