MnDOT seeks feedback from motorists and pedestrians in Cass Lake
Input needed from travelers, residents, business owners, bicyclists and pedestrians
BEMIDJI, Minn. – MnDOT, in a partnership with the City of Cass Lake and the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, is seeking feedback from Highway 2 users in Cass Lake as part of a pedestrian safety improvement study.
To share your feedback, visit the website at https://talk.dot.state.mn.us/hwy-2-cass-lake-corridor-study. On the website, you can share your experience and ideas using our interactive comment map and by taking a short survey.
“Community input is a critical piece of this study,” said Mike Chosa, communications director with the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, who is helping to lead the study. “The Band is aware of many challenges faced by users attempting to navigate the current Highway 2 corridor. Correcting these issues is a top priority for us. To move towards a solution, we need to hear from residents, business owners, commuters, bicyclists and pedestrians to help guide planning efforts and make the highway safer for all users.”
Information from the study will be used by MnDOT and a steering committee of local stakeholders and community leaders to review the current conditions, evaluate potential solutions and make recommendations on a future vision for the Highway 2 corridor in Cass Lake.
“The feedback we receive from the public will help us understand the safety issues and prioritize needs for pedestrian safety within the corridor.” said Jon Mason, MnDOT District 2 planning director.
