The Otter Tail County, Highway Department (OTC) is proposing reconstruction of approximately 6.4 miles of County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 34 (SAP 056-635-011) in conjunction with the construction of the first segment of the Perham to Pelican Rapids Regional Trail (SP 056-090-013) that will run parallel to the alignment of the reconstructed highway. The project is needed to meet the current demands on CSAH 34 by providing a safe transportation corridor that serves the current and projected traffic volumes and types that meets State Aid Rules. The project will also serve to establish the new Perham to Pelican Rapids Regional Trail, which is a County-planned, state and federally funded, pedestrian and bicycle (multi-use) transportation corridor.
