Planning Baxter’s Future – Gateway Standards Study

When you drive into Baxter on State Highway 371 or on State Highway 210, do you have opinions about how these roadway corridors should look or develop into the future?  The intent of the study is to evaluate Gateway Standards for the City of Baxter and determine what zoning amendments are required.  The City of Baxter’s Comprehensive Plan (adopted in 2015) states that the City needs to develop a new Business Gateway Zoning District for properties guided Business Gateway in the area between College Road and County Road 48 on Highway 371.  The Comprehensive Plan also states that Gateway Standards should be established for land on both sides of State Highway 371 from County Road 48 to the southern boundary of the City of Baxter and on the north side of State Highway 210 from west of Norway drive to the western boundary of the City of Baxter.

State Highway 371 Bike and Pedestrian Crossing Study Overview

Crossing Study Overview

The purpose of the study is to identify bike/pedestrian crossing improvements along Highway 371 at the signals as well as potential opportunities to construct a grade-separated crossing within the study area. Within the study area, there are existing traffic signals at Excelsior Road and Woida Road, with marked pedestrian crosswalks and pedestrian walk signals. These intersections are far apart, so pedestrians have to walk long distances to cross Highway 371. The study will also look for east-west trail connection opportunities. The City Comprehensive Plan identifies future trails at Clearwater Road and Woida Road, which will provide multimodal connections to and across Highway 371.

Policy Study Overview

The purpose of the study is to create a bike/pedestrian policy for use when reviewing roadway improvement projects in the City. Within the study area, there are 85 miles of roadway. The Policy Study will examine existing infrastructure, nation-wide best practices, and ways that Baxter can implement safe and cost-effective bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
