Summary of work

  • MnDOT partnered with the city of Pipestone to temporarily install two demonstration projects during the summer of 2021.

  • A median island refuge was installed on Hwy 75 near 5th St.
  • Both temporary projects were removed on Sept. 21.

What are demonstration projects?

  • Demonstration projects are short term, low cost, temporary roadway projects to promote and advance walking and bicycling.
  • Projects include, but are not limited to, bicycle lanes, crosswalk markings, curb extensions and median safety islands.

Next steps

  • Community input from online and paper surveys will be presented to the city of Pipestone. No projects are scheduled at this time.
  • Decisions on what, if any, safety projects will be permanently installed will be approved by MnDOT and the city of Pipestone.
