Notice of Public Hearings – CITY OF COLUMBUS



Municipal Consent Highway 97 Bridge and Ramp Modifications at I-35

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a Public Hearing will be held by the Columbus City Council on Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. or as soon thereafter as parties may be heard in the City Hall located at 16319 Kettle River Blvd., Columbus, Minnesota to review the request by the Minnesota Department of Transportation seeking approval of a portion of the State Project 8280-47, which includes resurfacing I-35 from south of the 35E/35W split to the Washington/Chisago County line north of Highway 8 and includes replacing the Highway 97 Bridge. The interchange will be reconfigured to a 4 lane diverging diamond interchange.

In accordance with Minnesota Statue 161.64, MnDOT is submitting for City approval the projects layout for the Highway 97 interchange area in the City of Columbus, labeled Layout and Profile 1 I-35 and TH97/CSAH 23 Interchange S.P. 8280-47 and dated January 4, 2017. The Citys approval (municipal consent) is required for this portion of the project located in the City because it requires acquisition of permanent rights-of-way for the widened interchange area and associated ponding.

All persons wishing to be heard upon this matter will be heard at that time and place.

Elizabeth Mursko

City Administrator
