County seeks highway upgrades

Several local projects are among those proposed by Washington County to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) for funding in 2015.

Local proposals include:

– A single-lane roundabout at the intersection of County State Aid Highway 15 (Manning Trail North) and Highway 97 in Scandia

– A center left-turn lane and right-turn lane at Highway 61/50th Street in Forest Lake;

– A center left-turn lane and right-turn lane at Highway 97/CSAH 1 (Lofton Avenue North) in Scandia.

MnDOT is accepting candidate projects for the fiscal year 2015 Metro Municipal Agreement Program. The program provides funding for construction projects that are developed and administered by local agencies and provide a benefit to both the local community and the trunk highway system.
