MnDOT, city of Wadena to conduct surveys on area roadways

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.-- Crews will conduct traffic surveys on Wadena area roadways Tuesday, October 25 from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (If the weather is bad, the surveys will be rescheduled for October 26 or October 27.)

Interviewers will randomly select a sample of motorists and direct them into designated survey stations at points along Highway 10, Highway 71, Highway 29 and Wadena County Road 4. They will ask motorists to participate in a 30- to 45-second interview regarding travel patterns and purposes.

The voluntary survey is part of the Wadena Area Transportation Study, a partnership between the city of Wadena, Otter Tail County, Wadena County and the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The collected data will help the study partners understand motorists' behaviors in the Wadena area and develop the future transportation plan to accommodate the region as it continues to grow.

The study partners appreciate motorists taking the time to participate in the surveys and share their driving experiences.
