Effectiveness of filling Highway 61 rumble strips questioned

Thu, 07/31/2014 - 12:17am

Speaking to the Cook County Board of Commissioners at the July 15, 2014 meeting, Chuck Flickinger of Hovland said he represented 200 families who were opposed to the sounds made by rumble strips installed by Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) on the east side of Cook County.

Flickinger said the mitigation done by MnDOT last fall, the partial filling of the offending strips, is ineffective. He said residents are still awakened at night and disturbed during the day. He said the 200 petitioners do not want more of the same. Flickinger asked the commissioners to send a letter to Representative David Dill and Senator Tom Bakk, requesting that MnDOT fill in all of the rumble strips.

Flickinger also shared two other concerns. First he said MnDOT is not in compliance with federal laws protecting scenic/recreational roadways.  Second, he said MnDOT should find better, more economical, alternative to rumble strips, namely those making two lane rural roads non-passing highways.

 “It is my opinion that rumble strips should never have been installed on Highway 61 without an environmental study and public hearings by MnDOT,” he said.

Before agreeing to send a letter, commissioners asked Flickinger to let them continue the dialogue they have established with MnDOT. West End Commissioner Bruce Martinson said MnDOT has had a complete reversal of its position on installing rumble strips since it received complaints about the noise from residents in Cook County and other places in Minnesota.

In the past, said Martinson, MnDOT’s plan was to include rumble strips anywhere there was an overlay or a highway reconstruction project. “But in the last year that has ended,” he said.
