MnDOT would like to hear from you about the demonstration project on Highway 27. Demonstration projects are temporary roadway projects that use low-cost materials to evaluate changes to the street before potentially investing in longer term solutions.

The goal of this project is to evaluate street and intersection changes to make walking and biking easier, safer, and more enjoyable for everyone. Your responses will help us understand how well the project meets those goals.

This demonstration project includes:
  • Shortening the pedestrian crossing distance by removing the center left turn lane and adding curb extensions at two crossings
  • Adding bicycle lanes marked with plastic tubes
The survey should take less than 5 minutes to complete. Your responses will remain confidential. We thank you for your time!

If you’d like more information about the project or survey, please contact Zach Whitley (; 320-293-9411).
