City Council to hold work session to discuss "complete streets" project

Mon, 07/14/2014 - 10:38am

After about a year of thinking and talking about improvements to the Highway 61 corridor through Grand Marais, city councilors set July 16 as the date for a three-hour workshop designed to set the “complete streets” project in motion.

Councilors reviewed a design proposal from LHB and C.J. Fernandez at their June 25 meeting. City Administrator Mike Roth explained that the proposal was only a draft, and will need to be pared down in its scope and cost. However, Roth said a finalized version will likely be available for council’s approval at their next meeting in two weeks.

The city has been working in partnership with the Sawtooth Mountain Clinic to come up with a streetscape redesign for Highway 61 as part of the Moving Matters program. Through a Blue Cross-Blue Shield grant, the Clinic has contributed $30,000 toward the effort; the city has agreed to kick in $15,000.

Roth said the original cost of the project was about $62,000, and some cutting has brought the price down to $52,000. More trimming is ongoing to bring the plan into alignment with the $45,000 available, said Roth.

As envisioned by Fernandez, the project will primarily focus on pedestrian access, safety and connectedness along the Highway 61 corridor through town, with an emphasis on improvements to create a more “human-scaled, safe walking and biking corridor, as well as a more inviting ‘front door’ to Grand Marais.”

Roth said the plan calls for the targeted corridor to be defined as between Eighth Avenue West and the Gunflint Trail intersection.

Upon completion of the plan (within 60 or 90 days), councilors and members of the Moving Matters committee will begin the task of looking for grants or other sources of funding to implement the plan’s recommendations.
