Momentum is building for getting critical improvements to the Highway 8 corridor. Over the summer a series of public engagement events were held along the corridor to gather feedback on issues, concerns, and ideas for the roadway. Five events were held, including four pop-up workshops and an open house. These events drew thousands of comments from over 300 people.
The clear messages gathered from these events was that the roadway is unsafe and there are mobility concerns. After evaluating community feedback and technical analysis, the project team, led by Chisago County, will be developing initial concept alternatives that address these community concerns. Another round of public engagement is anticipated to begin in December.
