Reminder: Nisswa, Baxter communities invited to Hwy 371 open houses Oct. 25

BAXTER, Minn. –  The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the traveling public, area residents and businesses to public meetings in both Nisswa and Baxter on Wednesday, Oct. 25, to provide feedback and learn more about an ongoing Highway 371 study of the area.
Two sessions will be held:

  • 11 a.m.–1 p.m. at Baxter City Hall, 13190 Memorywood Dr., Baxter
  • 5–7 p.m. at Nisswa City Hall, 5442 City Hall St., Nisswa

There will not be a formal presentation; attendees are encouraged to come and go at their leisure. The same information and materials will be available at both events.

Highway 371 between Nisswa and Baxter is a critical roadway for both the local community and the greater Brainerd Lakes region. The purpose of the study is to gain an understanding of transportation needs, identify potential future improvements, and determine how and when these improvements should be implemented. The study will include an analysis of traffic, safety, land use and demographics.

Visit the MnDOT Let’s Talk Transportation project web page to learn more about the project and sign up for email updates at https://talk.dot.state.mn.us/hwy-371-nisswa-baxter-study.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all.
