Detroit Lakes, MN (WDAY TV) - Detroit Lakes is on a mission to make its streets family-friendly. The city administrator says there are plenty of sidewalks and lanes along the lake, but there's no connecting path that's safe for families.

The city is looking into a cross-city multi-use path to increase recreational opportunities and be the foundation for a path connecting Detroit Lakes to Frazee. There is no easy way to put the path in, especially along County Road 6, where the shoulder varies.

Bob Louiseau – Detroit Lakes City Administrator: "We also have to be real sensitive to run off in the lake and a lot of issues like that so it's a little more complicated than just building a path.”

The project is just in the works with no price tag, and no construction date in place.
