Baxter community invited to take second online survey for Highway 210, consider potential solutions

BAXTER, Minn. — Those who drive, walk, ride, visit or do business on Highway 210 in the city of Baxter are invited to take a MnDOT survey for a transportation study in this area. The survey will be open online May 6 through June 2 and can be taken at metroquestsurvey.com/p4y7i.

Last year, MnDOT launched the study to look at existing and future needs along the Highway 210 corridor in Baxter. A survey was also conducted last fall to get initial feedback from the community on needs for the corridor where we received insight from a user’s perspective.

This new survey was created to seek public participation on the study’s key findings and potential solutions along this five-mile stretch of Highway 210 through Baxter.

The MnDOT study is being conducted in partnership with the City of Baxter and Crow Wing County. Public insight will be valuable to plan these future projects:

  • In 2022, City of Baxter to improve access to Inglewood Drive and Knollwood Drive at Highway 210.
  • In 2024, MnDOT plans to resurface in both directions of Hwy 210 between Baxter Drive and Timberwood Drive in Baxter, including safety and access improvements proposed for Meredith Drive, Memorywood Drive and Fairview Road intersections.

The study will be complete this summer and is focused on safety and mobility for all modes of travel on Hwy 210 in Baxter. For questions about this study or any future plans on Highway 210 contact District 3 Planning Director Steve Voss at steven.voss@state.mn.us or 218-828-5779, or log onto mndot.gov/d3/projects/baxter.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. If you need an ASL, a foreign language interpreter, or other reasonable accommodation, or need the online survey in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), please email your request to ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us or call 651-366-4720.
