Alternate truck route discussed to bypass downtown

Email

A committee of city and county officials has begun meeting to continue a long planned and partially begun truck alternate route around Park Rapids to route heavy industrial traffic away from the downtown area.

The initial step was to begin the route off U.S. Highway 71 north near the defunct Candle Factory north of Park Rapids in 2006. That's been completed to Highway 34.
