GF / EGF Bridge Debate

GF / EGF Bridge Debate Click to Enlarge

Numerous people spoke out against adding a fourth bridge at 32nd Avenue South during last night’s Grand Forks Planning and Zoning Commission meeting. The location - as well as one on Merrifield Road - are part of a long-range 2045 Transportation Plan compiled by the Metropolitan Planning Organization. Those attending the public hearing say the 32nd Avenue site makes no sense.

The P-and-Z approved the Transportation Plan without the 32nd Avenue South location.

The Grand Forks County Commission has also removed 32nd Avenue. The M-P-O’s Earl Haugen says the board left that site out of the report because it is more of a city vs county issue.

The Grand Forks City Council is expected to give final approval to the document on December 17th. The East Grand Forks council on December 18th.
