The City of Mandan, in partnership with the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Planning Organization, recently completed a Downtown Mandan Subarea Study www.downtownmandan.com. This study identified, evaluated, and prioritized the best solutions for Main Street – solutions that would reduce speeding, mitigate rear-end crash trends, and create a safe and inviting pedestrian environment with decorative lighting, bulb-outs, and planters. Recommendations from this study received funding for construction through the NDDOT Urban Grant Program. The timing of this project coincided with a planned NDDOT project scheduled for Main Street that would upgrade the existing traffic signals through downtown Mandan.

The Steering Committee discussed several options and opportunities to address the above goals. They shared information on what Streetscape elements they felt would be most successful to be included in the project including street trees, decorative sidewalk paving at curb extensions, and additional lighting with hanging flower baskets and festive banners. The design team will be working on these options and present them and other concepts for the Public Input Meeting on April 25, 2019.
