Lookout Drive-CSAH 13 Corridor Study

Developing over 2021-2022, the Lookout Drive-CSAH 13 Corridor Study will identify improvements on the Lookout Drive-CSAH 13 Corridor between 512th Street on the north and Lee Boulevard on the south. The study will evaluate existing issues and examine alternatives to help improve all modes of transportation, including driving, walking, biking, and transit. An effort of  MAPO, the City of North Mankato, and Nicollet County, the study will help define a comprehensive vision for the Lookout Drive-CSAH 13 Corridor. The concepts developed as part of the study will be high level and will need additional refinement through preliminary and final design.
