MnDOT seeks input on demonstration projects set-up in Long Prairie, Braham and Wahkon

Those who travel by foot, bicycle or motor vehicle, have an opportunity to ‘try-out’ three demonstration projects set up in the communities of Long Prairie, Braham and Wahkon.

The projects will be set in place through summer with use of temporary tape and traffic control devices. The community is invited to take an online survey to provide feedback on these demonstration projects:

  • Wahkon, Mille Lacs County: Bump-outs and road narrowing is set-up at the Highway 27 (Main Street) intersections of First Street W, Second Street and Third Street. A bike lane is marked along both sides of Highway 27 between the curb and the on-street parking lane. Complete a survey for the Wahkon demonstration project.

Any participant feedback is welcomed and will provide us valuable insight in planning future projects. Learn more, visit  or contact MnDOT Project Manager Zach Whitley by email  or phone 320-293-9411.

For real-time travel information anywhere in Minnesota, call 5-1-1 or visit


Sandy Reichel’ Celebration is 7/17, 1-3p, at the Wahkon Inn



MnDot changes Downtown Wahkon

Please note the MnDOT demonstration project is temporary and a means in which the public can try out the new design before construction. It should also be noted, the project includes changes beyond what you see. North Main Street will be reconfigured as it leaves the Hwy and goes to the lake, as well as, South Main Street near Country Caboose Quilt Store and additional cross walk to Chippewa Street from the Soo Line Trail. A public hearing will be required in the near future to fully discuss what works best for the City of Wahkon relative to the 2025 Main Street Hwy 27 Project. Public support is required prior to MnDOT implementing any changes. This project has been pushed back several times and will be the only means within the next 20 years, where Wahkon can partner with MnDOT to make Main Street something to be proud of. Again, this is only temporary and was a plan developed in part, through a MnDOT study.

The link below will bring you directly to relative information about the plan, including the MnDOT study. It is essential that all comments be forwarded to MnDOT through their website. Thank you for your input and patience during the busy summer months while this demonstration project is in place
