Hello All, MnDOT’s district 8 office would like to hear stories about the intersection of US 59 and MN 67. To better guide your story here are some things that would be helpful to them.
1. Description of how the intersection is used and/or what you’ve seen happen there. It is especially helpful to them to get descriptions of how bicyclist and pedestrians use the intersection—or maybe what you’ve heard of why people don’t use theintersection.
2. When you walk in the intersection where are you coming from and where are you headed to?
3. Does any particular crossing maneuver feel more dangerous than the rest? Why?
4. Has anyone tried to walk through the intersection when a train has been present? If so, what did they do and experience?Please send all stories to Lindsey Knutson <
