About this study
We are studying Olson Memorial Hwy between Border Ave. and the bridge west of Thomas Ave. This highway is an important route for the local community and surrounding region, including those that drive, walk, bike, roll, and use public transit.
We are conducting the study to better understand the needs of the community and explore long-term options that benefit the surrounding community and people who use the highway. The study will use technical analysis and input from the community on their transportation needs, existing experiences, and desires for the future of Olson Memorial Hwy.
