The council identified Mayor Dave Nevin and Public Works Director Pat Wehner to help review applicants and choose an engineer for the project. The city will include a link on its website to the documents.

The project is in response to the anticipated opening of the National Loon Center in 2024 at the recreation area and the expected traffic it will generate.

More on the planned improvement project
The county engineer said the reasons for pursuing an improvement to the intersection, tentatively scheduled for 2024, are twofold: to address existing congestion at the intersection, particularly in the summer months when tourism activity is at its peak, and to prepare for the expected influx of visitors once the planned National Loon Center is built within the Corps of Engineers property.

In April, the city and county were awarded a combined amount of $1.46 million from two federal grants to fund construction to address existing and future challenges.

Crosslake Chamber Director Cindy Myogeto reminded the council of the importance of keeping businesses and residents informed about these projects that occur in summer during the height of Crosslake's busy season.
