In recent years, Mn/DOT, Becker County and the city of Detroit Lakes have made significant investments in the transportation system infrastructure in the Detroit Lakes area. To protect these investments, the three agencies partnered to study the area west of Highway 59. The study partners recognize that new commercial development, a potential expansion of the Detroit Lakes/Becker County Airport, and ongoing city annexation for future development may affect how the current transportation systems function. The study partners hired HR Green Company to assist them in preparing a plan to evaluate existing and future transportation conditions and identify improvements to address any deficiencies.
