Regional Transportation Review

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. 

More information and project updates are available on the Town of Wadena website (townofwadena.com) or by calling either the RM of Lakeview 306-338-2341 or Town of Wadena 306-338-2145.
