Planning for Change & Growth

Over time, community priorities and growth patterns shift – The Street and Highway Plan reflects those changes.

This plan is part of the Grand Forks-East Grand Forks MPO Metropolitan Transportation Plan and is updated every five years. It provides an opportunity for the MPO to check in with its partners, stakeholders, and the public on existing and emerging transportation considerations.

We are dedicated to informing and including stakeholders and the public in the development this plan. If you would like to be updated on project milestones and events via email, join our mailing list.

  • Complete Streets Integration
  • Safety
  • Infrastructure Maintenance
  • Future Project and Policy Prioritization & Recommendations
