Highway 33 study open for comments

A study of the Minnesota Highway 33 corridor through Cloquet is being conducted to help create a transportation plan in the area, said a Minnesota Department of Transportation news release.

The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission and MnDOT are studying the state highway, in part, by gaining public feedback through a virtual open house available through Sept. 30.

“The goal of the transportation plan is to look at pedestrian and bicycle safety along Highway 33 in Cloquet and develop a long-range plan and vision for potential system improvements throughout Cloquet,” MnDOT said.

Potential improvements could include pedestrian, bicycle and aesthetic enhancements.

“Community engagement is a key factor in the development and success of this plan,” MnDOT said.

The virtual open house is available to view at any time and includes information on project goals, project timeline, and a look at existing conditions.
