Open house for County Road 47 Corridor Study set for Sept. 18
An open house for the County Road 47 Corridor Study is set for 4:30-6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18 at Wayzata Meadow Ridge Elementary School, 17905 County Road 47, in Plymouth.
The open house will showcase the progress of the study and the preferred corridor layout, which has been designed based on public feedback and traffic data collected throughout the year.
The City of Plymouth, in partnership with Hennepin County, began conducting a year-long study of the entire County Road 47 Corridor in early 2019. Once finalized, the study will shape future improvements to the corridor when funding becomes available.
About the County Road 47 Corridor Study
Plymouth residents and motorists have shared a variety of concerns regarding County Road 47 in the last decade, including speed limits, a lack of pedestrian facilities, lack of turn lanes, and the need for improved intersections and pedestrian crossings.
Though County Road 47 is a Hennepin County roadway, the City of Plymouth is taking a proactive approach with a study of the entire corridor in 2019. The study will examine the east-west corridor from Northwest Boulevard to County Road 101 (Brockton Lane) near the Maple Grove border.
The corridor study includes a traffic study and drainage analysis, the preferred layout and an action plan for future short- and long-term improvements. The final corridor study is anticipated to be finished in fall of 2019.
