Hwy 5 Corridor Study


About the project

Hwy 5 in Gaylord has experienced growth and increased traffic volumes in recent years, and additional growth and expansion are anticipated in the coming years.  In order to understand the transportation issues and opportunities for this growing community, Sibley County, MnDOT, and the City of Gaylord have initiated the Hwy 5 Corridor Study.

Summary of work

  • Analyze current and forecasted traffic volumes and traffic patterns based on growth projections, expansion plans, and new development.
  • Engage the surrounding community in developing an understanding of the Hwy 5 area and its current uses, as it will guide opportunities to accommodate future growth.
  • Develop a preferred alternative that can meet the future needs of the community while preserving the function of surrounding properties and providing safe and effective multi-modal transportation for the future.
