Pedestrian safety project installed in Bemidji
BEMIDJI, Minn. (Valley News Live) - A pedestrian safety project is now installed on Highway 197 at 6th Street in Bemidji, which is adjacent to Library Park.
This project will test safety benefits of a pedestrian refuge island and help Minnesota Department of Transportation officials evaluate if the temporary installation could become a permanent solution as a future project.
During the demonstration project, people driving north on Bemidji Avenue will not be able to make a left turn onto 6th Street.
MnDOT is asking people to drive by and test the project, then provide their feedback. Visit the project website.
