Engineers challenged by dangerous county roads

Email

Hubbard County doesn't have multi-lane interstate highways, clogged with bumper-to-bumper traffic and multi-vehicle pileups.

It has something much more lethal: two-lane roadways that are more hazardous to human life than any interstate.

And Hubbard County Road 9 could well be the deadliest.

A Road Safety Audit Report performed for Hubbard County and released in January 2008 indicated 70 percent of Minnesota fatal crashes occurred on rural roadways.
