About the study

MnDOT and the city of Wadena are conducting a comprehensive transportation and land use study to assess existing and future transportation and community needs. This study seeks to translate the transportation and community needs into short- and long-range investments that can shape the growth and development in this area. The study area focuses on Wadena and the surrounding area, which includes portions of Wadena and Otter Tail counties.


The outcomes of the study will support the local and regional economy in this area. As such, the study is being developed in a collaborative fashion with the focus on identifying real problems and right-sized solutions that can be implemented over time. There are two phases of work for the project: the planning stage and the concept design phase.
