Hwy 8, Lindstrom


About the project

A map of the Hwy 8 project in Lindstrom

The project will:

  • Separate east and westbound traffic into a "one-way pair" in the downtown area between Linden and Elm Streets
  • Construct pedestrian facilities, including trails and sidewalks
  • Provide an at-grade trail crossing at a new traffic signal at Akerson Street
  • Construct a new bridge over a channel connecting North Lindstrom and South Lindstrom Lakes, providing an important access for boaters
  • Construct frontage roads in some areas to improve safety by removing direct driveway access to Hwy 8
  • Install new traffic signals

The 2002 Hwy 8 Corridor Study identified the Lindstrom segment of Hwy 8 as having higher traffic volumes and crash rates compared to other segments.

Project benefits

The project addresses safety and capacity issues, including pedestrian and bicycle access.
