The city of Milaca, along with the Minnesota Department of Transportation and Mille Lacs County, is looking for public feedback on a future project to improve Highway 23.
The project would look to improve Highway 23 from the Rum River Bridge at 5th Street SW to Mille Lacs Co. Road 2.
According to MNDOT from 2015 to 2019, Highway 23 has seen around 12 crashes per year which is higher than the state average, accumulating roughly $740,000 in crash costs per year.
Improvements would include resurfacing, upgrading the intersection and signal system at 23 and Central Ave South & adding new pedestrian connections.
The survey will seek public input on improved traffic flow, safety and ways to meet the growing needs of the community
The survey will run until the end of March, with design solutions slated for release in the fall.
If you wish to participate in the public survey, you can find a link on the Milaca Facebook page or on the Department of Transportation’s website.
