Monticello city leaders want the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to include Interstate 94 improvements in a future highway investment plan.
Council members unanimously approved a consent agenda resolution to that effect July 8 without discussion.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is in the process of finalizing a new Minnesota State Highway Investment Plan (MnSHIP) that will serve as a guide for investment on the Minnesota State and Interstate highway system through the year 2033.
According to City Administrator Jeff O’Neill, MnDOT proposes to focus on system preservation, with limited major expansion projects included in the Twin Cities Region and no major expansion projects included in Greater Minnesota, including the Interstate 94 West Corridor.
