In Alexandria, the City and MnDOT District are evaluating a number of changes over eight weeks at Kenwood St and Hwy 29 (3rd Ave E). Each phase includes a temporary pedestrian beacon to signal to drivers that someone is crossing the street. A median safety island is being tested for four weeks. During the first two weeks, drivers will be allowed to turn left at the intersection. During the final two weeks, drivers will not be allowed to turn left at the intersection.
