Council Task Force to Evaluate Near-Term Solutions for Reducing Bridge Traffic Congestion

On November 13, City Council voted to create a task force to find ways to alleviate traffic congestion around the Marion and Center Street Bridges. The task force will examine the results of studies and projects from the past 20 years, as well as current and projected traffic data to inform their recommendations. Any potential solutions they develop will be independent of any decisions related to a new bridge
