Demonstration to take place on N Broadway Avenue, Miller Street
New York Mills is set to launch a Safe Routes to School (SRTS) demonstration project from the intersection of N Broadway Ave and Miller St to the intersection of N Broadway Ave and Mocking Bird Ln.
Demonstration projects are temporary, low-cost roadway projects that are used to test potential design solutions to improve walking and biking. This project is funded by a grant from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and is being completed in partnership with the City of New York Mills.
The project offers an opportunity for students, families, and members of the public to try potential changes to the street that are designed to improve safety and comfort for children walking and biking to school along N Broadway Ave. Community members are invited to walk, bike, and drive through the project site and share feedback via an online survey.
The pilot will begin in early May 2023 and is anticipated to be removed in early June. The project will include temporary curb extensions, high-visibility crosswalk markings, pedestrian crossing signs, and a separated pedestrian lane.
