The Rochester-Olmsted Council of Governments (ROCOG) is initiating a transportation study of the Willow Creek area in the southern portion of the greater Rochester urban area to identify improvements needed to address existing safety and travel concerns as well as plan for future needs stemming from anticipated growth and development in the area.
The study area includes land in the City of Rochester as well as abutting areas of Rochester and Marion Townships. The study will consider multiple modes of travel, including vehicular travel, pedestrian and bicycle travel, and transit service in the area.
