The City of Winona has an opportunity to apply for a grant that would allow it to upgrade and improve Broadway.
The question of whether to apply for the grant and begin the process of designing the improvements will be discussed by the City Council at a public informational session tonight at 5:00 pm at City Hall.
To encourage the Council to apply for the grant, a number of citizens have posted an online petition supporting the grant application.
There is no actual design or plan on the table at this time. The main issue is whether or not the City should apply for the grant so that it can begin the design process.
If the grant is approved, the goal would be to design a roadway that fits the needs of the community today. A big part of that is to make the road safer. But also to incorporate modern design elements to make sure Broadway remains efficient for drivers.
