February 2017

Past event: Open House

When: Thursday, February 16
Time: 4-6 p.m.
Location: Biotechnology Advancement Center
(1527 Prairie Drive, Worthington, MN 56187)

MnDOT, the City of Worthington, and Nobles County are asking for community input in the next step of creating a vision for the reconstruction of US 59 along Oxford Street and Humiston Avenue. The study team previously asked for input to understand how people use the US 59 corridor and what improvements/modifications you would like included with its reconstruction. Now we want you to help us narrow down our alternatives and select a locally preferred alternative concept for US 59.

Open house attendees will have an opportunity to provide additional input on the cross-section images (alternatives) and vote on their preferences in-person. These are the same cross-section images featured in the second online survey. These alternative concepts were developed as a result of public input through previous public engagement activities (focus group meetings, input at the Farmers Market/Crusin’ Downtown & King Turkey Day, and feedback from the study’s first survey). In the end, your voice will help shape the design considerations for this corridor and the future vision of US 59 in Worthington.
