Working Group for Intersection in Wilkin County

Active dates:March 2017 - January 2018

The commissioner of transportation must convene a working group to consider potential options for Wilkin County Road 19 between marked Trunk Highway 55 and the railroad tracks north of marked Trunk Highway 55. By December 15, 2017, the working group must identify project options to address safety concerns of local residents at this location. For each identified project, the commissioner must include an estimated cost and the estimated date by which the project would be completed. The working group must then identify a preferred option. Based on that preferred option, the responsible parties must develop funding strategies and a delivery schedule with the goal that the project be completed by December 31, 2019.

By January 1, 2018, the commissioner must report to the chairs, ranking minority members, and staff of the senate and house of representatives committees or divisions with jurisdiction over transportation policy and finance. The report must, at a minimum, include: a summary of the meetings held by the working group; the project options identified and the commissioner estimates associated with each option; and, if identified, the preferred option and the funding and delivery schedule for that option.


According to the working group's final report, meetings were held between March and November 2017. The results of these meeting included a final recommendation. The preferred option of the working group was Option 6. This option addressed the crossing blockages by trains remaining stationary keeping mainline traffic from proceeding through the Nashua area. This option addresses the blocked crossing for vehicles that want to move into and out of Nashua by bypassing the CP siding tracks near Highway 55 and CSAH 19.Local township roads will be used for this route. The location of the route is one mile east of Nashua and uses an existing crossing.


The working group must consist of the commissioner, or designee, and one representative from each of the following: Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative; the Wilkin County Board; the town board of Champion; and the city council of Nashua.
