The installation of the signal is one of a number of improvements included in the state Department of Transportation and city of Mandan's plan to reconstruct Memorial Highway. Construction is scheduled to being in spring 2022.

North Dakota's Department of Transportation is holding a second public input meeting on the proposed reconstruction of Memorial Highway in Mandan, a stretch of road better known as the "Strip."

The meeting is 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday at Midway Lanes, at 3327 Memorial Highway. It will include a presentation at 5:30 p.m., and opportunities for people to speak with project staff and share their comments. It's intended for people who were unable to attend a public meeting held in July.

Plans to upgrade the roughly 2-mile section of road have been in the works since 2010, when the Bismarck-Mandan Metropolitan Planning Organization and the city of Mandan commissioned a study. Improvements being eyed include adding a sidewalk and walking trail, as well as a traffic light near McDonald's.

The estimated preliminary cost is between $35 million and $40 million. The federal government will cover 81% of the cost, the state 9% and Mandan 10%. The first of three construction phases is scheduled to begin in spring 2022.
