Congratulations to the City of Oakdale for being awarded a $400,000 Regional Solicitation grant from Metropolitan Council. 

The Transportation Advisory Board approves the federal Highway Safety Improvements funding.  These projects promote safety by addressing design elements to reduce crashes, particularly those of a severe nature. The 2020 Regional Solicitation awarded about $200 million in federal transportation funds to 56 projects in 36 different cities and townships and all seven counties throughout the region.

This grant will be used for the 2024-2025 Gold Line Bicycle and Pedestrian Sidewalk on the west side of Greenway Avenue North from Hudson Boulevard to 7th Street North.  The project will incorporate several improvements with the goal of improving the safety, functionality and traveling experience for pedestrians along Greenway Avenue North from Hudson Boulevard to 7th Street North. Improvements include putting a sidewalk on the west side of Greenway, new pedestrian ramps at intersections, and driveway reconstruction at adjacent residential homes to accommodate the new sidewalk.
