It is based on a transportation study completed in 2011 by MnDOT, Becker County and the city of Detroit Lakes, in which several concepts for improved traffic flow were developed. This project is a combination of reconstructing and expanding the existing frontage road systems, managing access points and constructing an underpass below Hwy 59 at Main Street and Morrow Avenue. The project will involve MnDOT and the city of Detroit Lakes.
