Status of the Study
Public feedback has been collected (see below). The public is invited to an open house for the County Road 47 Corridor Study.
Wednesday, Sept. 18
Meadow Ridge Elementary School,
17905 County Road 47, 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.
Once finalized, the study will shape future improvements to the corridor when funding becomes available. The final corridor study is anticipated to be finished in fall of 2019.
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, in partnership with the county, will examine the east-west corridor from Northwest Boulevard to County Road 101 (Brockton Lane) near the Maple Grove border.
The scope of the study includes:
- Gathering public feedback
- Conducting a traffic study and drainage analysis
- Preparing a preferred layout (what the corridor should look like based on data and feedback)
- Developing an action plan
As part of the study, the public was asked to provide feedback about their experiences as bicyclists, pedestrians and motorists along the corridor.
In addition to collecting comment cards and emails, an open house was held in March to collect input and the public was asked to participate in an interactive online feedback map. View the Public Engagement Summary (PDF).
