With the increased traffic of semis in the Mankato hilltop area due to the new Walmart distribution center, there is nowhere for the trucks to park.
This leads the trucks to park in the Gordmans/Gander Mountain parking lot. With this use of the parking lots, the roundabout near Hy-Vee and the exit near Applebee’s are being destroyed.
The roundabout’s landscaping, signs, and the grass are all being wrecked due to these trucks.
To fix these damages, the truckers should be charged a daily fee for the parking to repair these damages. This would also prevent future damages since it could potentially reduce the truck traffic.
