SARTELL (WJON News) -- Transportation planners will ask the Minnesota Department of Transportation for a speed study on a corridor linking Sartell to St. Cloud.

The Stearns County Board will be asked to approve a resolution for a speed study on County Road 1, also known as River Avenue North. It's part of a larger study of the road between 9th Avenue in St. Cloud and County Road 120 in Sartell.

The county is partnering with Sartell, St. Cloud, and the St. Cloud Area Planning Organization to create a vision for the corridor near Heim's Mill.

The speed study is a result of public comments revealing concerns about the 40-mile-per-hour speed limit.
