The City of Grand Forks has received comments concerning the need to make improvements on S. Columbia Road and 47th Avenue S. to allow pedestrian & bicycle traffic to cross more safely.  To better understand what type of improvements should be pursued, if any, the city sought input about potential improvements for pedestrian & bicycle safety in the Discovery Elementary & South Middle School areas.
