7 years ago, the City of Jenkins boasted 287 citizens but the city has grown by an estimated 24% since then to a population of more than 356. And now Jenkins is about to get its first stop light. MnDOT enginner Tim Bray told the Lake Country Echo that a temporary signal light will be installed late next spring at the junction of Crow Wing County Road 16 and Highway 371. Cost of the project may be as high as $400,000 but Jenkins and Pequot Lakes would have to pay roughly $5,000. Federal and county taxpayers will pick up the rest of the cost. The intersection will also include a crosswalk for pedestrians and a "be prepared to stop" warning system.
