You are invited to share input on the Warren Street Corridor Study. The Study will identify improvements on Warren Street (between Riverfront Drive and Highland Park). The study will evaluate existing issues and present 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.
Members of the public are invited to participate in a second round of public engagement from April 27 – May 8, 2020. Please review the below materials illustrating different alternatives for Warren Street and submit comments through the comment box at the bottom of this page, or:

The study’s first Open House was held in the Mankato Room of the Intergovernmental Center (10 Civic Center Plaza, Mankato) on October 24, 2019 from 4:30p.m. – 6:00p.m. Those who were not able to attend the Open House are encouraged to review the informational display boards, available here.
Over 2019 and 2020, MAPO’s Warren Street Corridor Study will evaluate alternatives for management of existing and future traffic flow (including pedestrian, bicyclist, personal auto, and transit) along a segment of Warren Street in Mankato. The segment studied will run along Warren from Riverfront Drive to Highland Park (via Cedar and Highland Ave.). The study will analyze safety, alternatives, access management, intersection control evaluations, alternative intersection designs, pedestrian connectivity including mid-block crossings, potential changes in cross sections and lane configurations from existing conditions, and possible impacts on parallel streets associated with the alternatives.
The Study will determine a range of alternatives for potential multimodal improvements throughout the segment by performing an operational analysis of major intersections, pedestrian movements, transit operations, safety, public engagement, and traffic flow to ensure the most efficient and community-supported design is implemented for future reconstruction.
There are a variety of methods to share your thoughts with the study team regarding existing issues and potential opportunities for improvements, including;
