Driving in Grand Forks

Just curious: Do we get to hear the same arguments as we did about Arbor Park then? How people from outside the ward are deciding for those in the ward most affected? 

Based on that standard, the Columbia Road overpass would never have happened. Lots of complaining about that project when it was being discussed from people living in the UND campus area. Could you imagine Grand Forks without the Columbia Road overpass? I cannot.

Much larger area involved than Arbor Park. Two cities and two states weighing in. Need lots of entities coming together.

Funny how those things work ... 

Normally it's "We're most affected! We decide!" ... until the ward wants something that is a bit pricier than the ward alone can afford and then it's "The city needs this so send money please".

A southern route should have been built so many years ago when there was less "stuff" to destroy during construction. Now the city is left with no perfect option because the can was kicked too long down the road but it needs to be done or GF's growth will be limited.  Demers/42nd Ave Intersection also needs something done before 42nd Ave really starts to boom.   However, now it would be almost impossible with the entire area surrounded by developed properties. Sometimes I think people are too nearsighted or afraid to make tough decisions.

The blacktop they laid down on South Washington last year is already showing signs of deterioration.

It’s a huge problem for Grand Forks as a whole.

Always or already?

Yes, but for the low price they paid to do it and the 2-3 days total it took to do it they should do it every couple years until they have money to do a complete redo

The complete redoes are for Columbia Road.
