City of Brainerd
The highway was originally constructed in 1957. The existing pavement is nearing the end of its life with a ride quality index (RQI) of 2.8; projects are programmed when the RQI drops below 3.0. Existing sidewalks do not meet accessibility standards under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The city of Brainerd’s aging sewer and water utilities are deteriorated, with several breaks in recent years.
South Sixth St (Highway 371B) in Brainerd is scheduled for reconstruction in 2018 (originally 2017).
