While on patrol this summer, officers of the Minot Police Department will be looking for kids wearing helmets. If caught, a child may find themselves making a trip to a local Dairy Queen restaurant. As part of AAA’s “I got Caught” campaign, as many as 12,000 North Dakota youth will be issued a “citation” for a free small DQ cone for wearing a helmet while biking, skateboarding or in-line skating. Last year, approximately 1000 citations were issued in Minot alone.

The virtual open house will run from April 19 to May 17 at www.movingbroadway.com. Visitors to the site can review project documents, view corridor alternative overview videos, and submit comments. There will also be live question and answer sessions on May 5 for Broadway south of 20th Avenue SW and May 6 for Broadway north of 20th Avenue SW. You must register in advance to participate in the live sessions by contacting Bethany.brandt@bolton-menk.com. “We are asking for the public’s help in prioritizing and refining the options that have been developed,” said City Engineer Lance Meyer. “The options we’re presenting now do not lock us into any final design. The information we’re gathering will help us determine what the final design will look like when we reach the point of design and construction, which is years from now.” The Broadway Corridor Study is a collaborative effort between the City of Minot, North Dakota Department of Transportation, and a consultant team.
