The Town of Wadena and RM of Lakeview are concerned about safety issues related to trucks passing through Wadena, particularly in vicinity of Wadena Elementary School and Main Street. The Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure (MHI), Town of Wadena and RM of Lakeview have agreed to work together in partnership to undertake a regional transportation review to identify potential solutions to alleviate safety concerns with the truck traffic.
This review will assess regional transportation needs, constraints, and opportunities through data collection and analysis and completion of a needs assessment. Options will be developed and communicated to both stakeholders and the public for feedback.
The Steering Committee met in January and February to collect and review data. The next meeting is scheduled in March to begin the needs assessment.
More information and project updates are available on the Town of Wadena's Regional Transportation Review blog or by calling either the RM of Lakeview 306-338-2341 or Town of Wadena 306-338-2145.
