At the request of some of the neighbors that live in this area and parents with children that attend Harriet Bishop Elementary School, I am going to try to raise awareness and get this project moving. The city completed its work nearly 2 years ago and is currently waiting for county action.
I recently inquired about the status of the signalization of the intersection at 3rd Street NW and West Circle Drive. I don’t think this is particularly expensive of controversial, so we just need to bring some attention to it. My hope is that some of my fellow citizens will read and share this information and lobby the County Board and Engineer to take action. This intersection remains one of the most dangerous in Southeastern Minnesota.
I wanted to share with you the engineering background and communications that go into making a decision as to whether a signalization is warranted.
To request Olmsted County action please contact the Olmsted County Board of Commissioners:
2010 Chair – Judy Ohly
2011 Chair – Mike Podulke
District 5 Commissioner – Jim Bier
District 6 Commissioner – Dave Perkins
County Engineer –Michael Sheehan
County Administrator – Richard Devlin
They are all good people so just contact them and make them aware of who you are and that would like to see this signalization complete in 2011.
