Three alternatives were under consideration:
- 3-lane section (center turn lane) with parallel parking on both sides
- 2-lane section with parallel parking and wider boulevard/sidewalks
- 2-lane section with angled parking
Using the conclusions from the Stakeholder Advisory Committee along with additional input provided by community members, the 3-lane section was selected for further review and development.
The concept includes one lane in each direction, a center turn lane, sidewalks, and parallel parking on both sides of the street throughout the downtown area. It would enhance mobility and safety for all users, while also staying within the existing MnDOT right-of-way.
A roundabout is under consideration for the intersection of Highway 371 and County Road 5.

MnDOT and its partners have committed to work with the Hackensack community to ensure that the community’s concerns and aspirations are directly reflected in the alternatives developed as part of the Highway 371 Study and to provide feedback on how the community influenced recommendations and decisions.
