MnDOT seeks public participation for Statewide Bicycle System Plan

WILLMAR — The public, local government officials and transportation supporters are invited to participate in Minnesota’s Statewide Bicycle System Plan online or in person on April 30 in Granite Falls at the Kilowatt Community Center, 600 Kilowatt Dr.

All meetings include a structured workshop from 4 to 6 p.m., where attendees should plan to stay the entire time. A community open house will follow the workshop where attendees can share comments informally. For those unable to attend in person, an online participation is available at

Kid-friendly activities will be offered throughout the evening for children.

Participants will be asked to provide feedback on:

- Where are the MnDOT roads that could improve the local bike network?

- Where are the places riders want to bike long distance?

- Where do people feel comfortable biking?

- With limited funding, how should we prioritize projects?

Feedback will help MnDOT identify and recommend routes, improve existing facilities in the bike system and more effectively address the needs of bicycles riders in Minnesota.

The public also may submit written comments on the project website, email or mail to Greta Alquist, MnDOT Office of Transit MS 315, 395 John Ireland Blvd., St. Paul, MN, 55155
