The Warren Street Corridor Study identified improvements on Warren Street (between Riverfront Drive and Highland Park). The study evaluated existing issues and presented alternatives to help improve all modes of transportation, including driving, walking, biking, and transit. An effort of the MAPO and the City of Mankato, the Study will help define a comprehensive vision for Warren Street in preparation for the 2021 reconstruction. The concepts developed as part of the study are high level and will need additional refinement through preliminary and final design.
Members of the public were invited to participate throughout the process including an intensive public engagement schedule in late 2019, including an in-person open house held October 24 and outreach to City of Mankato Public Safety, Cherry Ridge Apartments, Greater Mankato Bike Walk Advocates, Greater Mankato Growth, Mankato City Center Partnership, Old Main Village Apartments, Minnesota State University – Mankato, Colonial Square Apartments, VINE, SMILES (Durham Apartments & Gus Johnson Apartments), Blue Earth County Historical Society, Highland Park Neighborhood Association, Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association, and the Mankato Transit System. A second round of public engagement was held in 2020, as well as ongoing public comment collection and review.
