Corridors of Commerce project

 

October 7, 2014 - MnDOT has selected $70 million in Corridors of Commerce projects for FY 2015. Twelve projects will be funded with $25 million from the 2014 state Legislature to prepare them for future construction. The other project is the $45 million expansion of Highway 371 to four lanes from Nisswa to Jenkins. See the governor's announcement.

Pequot Lakes Hwy 371 Layout Pine River Hwy 371 Layout Jenkins and Wilson Township Hwy 371 Layouts Nisswa/Twin Lakes Hwy 371 Layout Nisswa Hwy 371 Layout - 2012 realignment of Crow Wing County Rd 18 Nisswa Hwy 371 Layout - 2012 realignment of Crow Wing County Rd 18 Pequot Lakes Hwy 371 Layout In 2012- 2013, a access and safety improvement project was completed on Hwy 371 in Nisswa. The signalized intersection at Crow Wing CR 18 and Hwy 371 was realigned approximately one quarter mile south. The project is in partnership with MnDOT, Crow Wing County and the city of Nisswa.

 

Pequot Lakes

 

In spring of 2006, the Pequot Lakes City Council requested that MnDOT give consideration to accepting the four lane expansion bypass option as the new preferred alternative. MnDOT has been working together with the city to examine the effects of this change. A joint committee comprised of members of the City Council and the Pequot Lakes Planning and Zoning Commission have met, evaluated and refined the details of a bypass alignment. In September 2007, a Hwy 371 Alternate Route Study Group Report was published with the committees findings.

 

Jenkins

 

In an associated project, construction of a temporary signal at Crow Wing County Road 16 was completed in 2008. Public input regarding future access points to the new industrial park and service road continues.

 

Pine River

 

In 2012, crews resurface Hwy 371 from Upper Roy Lake Rd to Pine River. Also, pedestrian access improvements were installed from Ridge Avenue to Jefferson Ave on the east side of Hwy 371 in Pine River and new curb and gutter from Norway Ave to Jefferson Ave on the west side.  Right turn lanes were also installed at the signalized intersection.

 

In 2011, relocation and rehabilitation of the historic Pine River Depot was completed in preparation for the future reconstruction. MnDOT, Cass county, city of Pine River and the Heritage Group North partnered on this project.
