MnDOT begins collecting survey information along Highway 200

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — This week the Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin collecting survey information along Highway 200, from the Wild Rice River to just east of the Mahnomen/Clearwater County line.

The survey information is being collected within 100 feet of the existing shoulder on Highway 200. Survey crews will take multiple shots within this area, and the work is expected to take up to eight weeks to complete. The collected information is necessary for the final design of MnDOT’s 2022 construction project, which includes adding and widening shoulders on Highway 200.

The survey work should not affect traffic flow or speeds; however, MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down and watch for crews working near the shoulder.

Public open houses pertaining to the project will be scheduled at a later date.
