Wadena area invited to participate in the future Highway 10
You must have an opinion. This is your chance to share it either through an online survey or a meet and greet scheduled for Aug. 25.
WADENA — Travelers who drive, ride, walk or do business on Highway 10 in the Wadena area are invited to take the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s survey and/or visit with the project team at a meet-and-greet on Thursday, Aug. 25, for a future transportation project.
Public participation is needed to assist in planning the future needs of Highway 10. The study is being conducted in collaboration with the City of Wadena.
- The proposed project improves six miles of Highway 10 from west of Wadena at 620th Avenue, Otter Tail County, to east of Wadena at Oink Joint Road/140th Street, Wadena County. The $40-$60 million project would add four lanes of traffic continuously through Wadena.
- MnDOT is looking at potential environmental impacts and creating a draft geometric layout.
The survey will be available from Thursday, July 28, through Saturday, Sept. 10, and can be found on the project webpage: www.mndot.gov/d3/projects/wadena/h10/ .
The survey asks how you use the highway, your racial background, safety concerns you may have, considerations for walking or biking along the highway and allows ample room to comment on whatever you'd like.
After your survey check out the " community input " map that allows you to post comments and highlight a specific area of the road that you have concerns or thoughts about.
The public is invited to learn about plans for the Highway 10 project and speak with MnDOT staff. The meet-and-greet will be held on Thursday, Aug. 25, from 4 - 6 p.m. at Maslowski Wellness & Research Center, 17 Fifth St. SW in Wadena. Guests can come and go as they please as there will not be a formal presentation.
MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all.
