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
The final report is anticipated for completion in late summer/early fall of 2019.
A variety of tools will help gather feedback from the public, including:
