MN 220 Corridor Study


The Grand Forks-East Grand Forks Metropolitan Planning Organization, in cooperation with MnDOT, Polk County, and City of East Grand Forks, is advancing the MN 220N Corridor Study. The MPO has retained Alliant Consulting to assist with the Study. The Study will identify and address current and projected transportation issues associated with the study area. The Study Corridor comprises about 2 miles of Mn220N on the northerly edge of the city of East Grand Forks and the county of Polk in Minnesota. The study area limits are approximately from the intersection of 140th St SW (township road/north levee) on the north of Mn220N south along Mn220N (Central Ave) to its transition at 9th St NE to DeMers Ave. Nine intersections will be under consideration. The corridor provides access to primarily existing and future commercial and agricultural uses. The purpose of the study is to develop a document which will provide recommendations for future transportation facility needs along Mn220N and its crossroads. The MN 220 N Corridor Study Final Report is expected to be available in June, 2019.


The MPO has a public involvement plan that requires public participation when preparing plans and programs. The goal is to build informed consensus towards a vision that can guide future transportation investments along MN 220. The Public Involvement process will ensure engagement with key stakeholders and the public at important milestones within the project; thus, all involved are informed and can provide the vital input required to shape the study.


The MPO is inviting you, as well as, local stakeholders and advocates to actively participate in advancing this initiative. Your participation is truly appreciated. Please see Meeting Schedule, Study Considerations and Project Schedule. The exact date of each meeting has yet to be scheduled; shown are the range of potential dates.
