Hwy 2 Corridor Study


Purpose of Study

The City of Crookston is conducting a corridor study to evaluate the transportation and pedestrian needs of Highway 2 in Crookston. The primary goal is to create a future vision for the corridor that:

  • Improves safety for motorists and pedestrians
  • Manages access
  • Improves freight movement
  • Aligns with the City’s development goals.

A key focus in accomplishing these goals is determining Highway 2 access management options for key intersections at Sixth Street and Robert Street. The final recommended solution will serve as a long-term implementation tool moving forward for both the City of Crookston and MnDOT.

Community Review Panel

Visit the Public Involvement page to learn how MnDOT is partnering with the City of Crookston to help identify the current issues and create a local vision for the corridor. A Community Review Panel will help City of Crookston ensure that community values are represented in the development and evaluation of project alternatives, while fostering conversations within the community.


MnDOT and its partners have committed to work with the Crookston community to ensure that the community’s concerns and aspirations are directly reflected in the alternatives developed as part of the Highway 2 Study and to provide feedback on how the community influenced recommendations and decisions.
