The project will address pavement concerns, pedestrian accessibility (ADA) requirements and storm sewer needs.

The City of Henning has been working with MnDOT and PartnerSHIP 4 Health to conduct a planning study ahead of MnDOT's design phase to help aid them in applying for Transportation Alternative grants.

Key project elements

  • Reconstruct Highway 108 in Henning
  • Proposed downtown Complete Streets reconstruction
  • Sanitary sewer replacements
  • Sidewalk improvements
  • Bicycle and pedestrian accessibility upgrades

Project impacts

  • Potential for additional right of way for construction
  • Construction impacts, such as detours, closures and delays
  • Environmental impacts, including tree removals

Project demonstration

In Sept. 2020, MnDOT conducted a small-scale demonstration of some of the proposed design features for the 2024 reconstruction project. Public feedback was collected via an online survey.

Some of the proposed ideas included:

  • Temporary striping and delineators between Second Street and Front Street to show proposed width adjustments to the driving lanes and parking lane
  • Mid-block bump out for proposed improvements to pedestrian crossing
  • Pedestrian bump out at each end of town at Marshall Avenue/Fourth Street and Minnesota Street

Feedback from the demonstration was also used to help inform MnDOT's Statewide Pedestrian Plan.
