The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), in partnership with Sibley County and the City of Gaylord, are seeking community feedback on design concepts for Hwy 5 through Gaylord. The project partners are currently conducting a study to develop future transportation improvements along the Hwy 5 corridor, as well as the supporting local roadways.

The public is invited to participate in a virtual open house by watching a video presentation of three design concepts and completing a survey by September 16. Both the video and survey can be found on the project website at mndot.gov/d7/projects/gaylordhwy5/

Hwy 5 in Gaylord has experienced growth and increased traffic volumes in recent years, and additional growth and expansion are anticipated. In order to understand the transportation issues and opportunities for this growing community, MnDOT, Sibley County and the City of Gaylord initiated the Hwy 5 Corridor Study.
