(Wahkon, MN) — The Minnesota Department of Transportation is inviting those who travel by foot, bicycle or motor vehicle along Highway 27 (Main Street) in Wahkon to “try-out” demonstration projects which include a bike lane.

MnDOT will be installing bump-outs and will narrow the road between the intersections of First Street W and Third Street for a bike lane on the stretch of Main Street in Wahkon. A bike lane will be marked along both sides of Highway 27 between the curb and the on-street parking.

Demonstration projects will also be conducted for a multi-use trail along Highway 287 in Long Prairie and curb extensions at the intersection of Highway 107 and Central Drive in Braham. Crew will use temporary traffic control devices, and paint or white tape, to set-up project areas, between May 19 and mid-June.

MnDOT will be taking participant feedback to provide insight in planning future projects. Surveys will be established in mid-June, contact Project Manager Zach Whitley by email, or by phone (320-293-9411). Learn more about the demonstration projects, by going to the MnDOT website.
