About this study
This study examined traffic through the City of Hastings and the effects of providing a new roadway along the southern edge of the city. This new road would allow through traffic to bypass the existing segment of Hwy 316, which runs through a highly developed part of Hastings, and would reorient this traffic along a roadway network better suited for higher volumes. The new road could also provide a geographic buffer between urban development and agricultural land uses.
