Community members and the public were invited to attend three open houses in June for the Highway 22 Corridor Study. Separate open houses were held in Kasota, Mankato and Mapleton. Attendees had the opportunity to talk with the study team, review potential corridor roadway and sidewalk alternatives, potential options for the DNR State Minnesota River Trail between Saint Peter and Mankato and learn about next steps. Each open house had a drop-in style format with informational display boards. No formal presentation was given. The same material was presented at each open house.

The study team decided to forgo a second round of originally planned small focus group meetings and instead offered separate public open houses in each community. We previously held small focus group meetings in Kasota, Mankato, and Mapleton as well as a pop-up event and open house in Mankato to ask for feedback on how each community uses the corridor, potential issues and areas of opportunity for transportation improvements.

The first Highway 22 Corridor Study open house was held on January 18, 2018. Public input was sought on potential issues, needs and opportunities for improvements for highway users as well as other modes of transportation including pedestrian and transit.  More specifically, the study partners are looking at lane configurations, access management, intersection control options, intersection designs, bicycle and pedestrian connections, local roadway and trail networks, and potential land use impacts and opportunities.
