Project study

Do you drive, ride or walk in Brainerd on Highway 210/Washington Street? Help shape the vision for the future road and sidewalks.

We need your input

MnDOT, Crow Wing County and the City of Brainerd need your help in planning the future Hwy 210/Washington St. through Brainerd. In 2025 or beyond, we will begin to reconstruct both directions of the four-lane between Baxter Dr. and Pine Shores Rd. We are currently working together to study the corridor to better understand the community’s needs, issues and use of the roadway.
