This public open house will be an opportunity for community members to review the results of the recently completed traffic study, ask questions and provide feedback on a variety of options for safety improvements in the corridor.

Project Background

A Council Initiated Action (CIA) regarding Elton Hills Drive was submitted by Council Members Johnson and Palmer on May 20, 2019. The CIA outlined the request for Public Works to, in summary, implement previously recommended safety improvements and turning restrictions on Elton Hills Drive NW. As part of that process, the Public Works Department identified the need to perform a traffic study for Elton Hills Drive to help determine the street space, use, and lane configuration of the corridor.

Project Next Steps

Teammates from the Public Works Department will share the results of the traffic and safety study and public feedback at the City Council Study Session on December 16, 2019. City Council will be asked to give further direction on the project at that time.

Additional Project Information

Information about this project is available online at www.rochestermn.gov/eltonhillsdrive. The traffic study will be available on this website on or before Monday, December 2, 2019.
