Hwy 12 Mahtomedi Greenway Project - safe transportation options for all
Washington Cty Hwy 12- Wildwood Rd (was MN 244) is being rebuilt in 2021. There is an open house on March 5th and a once in 30 years opportunity to improve our community safety for all .
Please invite community leaders, and encourage your neighbors, bicycle, walking and Safe Routes to Schools advocates to sign this petition, comment and attend the:
244/12 Wildwood Road Improvement Project Open House
Thursday, March 5th
Mahtomedi High School
244/12 Wildwood Road - Century Ave to Stillwater Blvd.
Community advocates would like to propose this 1.25 mile section of 244/12 as major “Greenway” and Safe Routes to Schools corridor for bicyclists and pedestrians, connecting the major shopping, neighborhood, parks and school destinations in Mahtomedi, that are now isolated by the unsafe current 244 traffic congestion and high speed traffic.
Bicycle and Pedestrian “Greenway” Corridor Priorities to Consider:
1) Wedgewood Drive Intersection & Crosswalk
Estimated 70% of drivers do not stop or slow down for pedestrians within the crosswalk.
Cars have difficulty turning onto 12/244 from Wedgwood Drive.
2) Bike Lanes
Improve the ability of students and families to safety bike and walk along 244/12.
3) Speed Reduction & Traffic Calming
Estimated over 70% of drivers exceed the posted speed limit in this road section.If you support these and other safety improvements priorities, please sign the petition, comment and attend the March 5th Open House to demonstrate community support
