About this project
This study was done so that a corridor could be selected for preservation for the future Minnesota River Crossing. The crossing will connect Hwy 169 and Hwy 212, near Hwy 41.
MnDOT worked with the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), local governmental units, the Metropolitan Council, state and federal resource agencies and other interested parties to study the need for and potential impacts of this project.
Design details will be studied during a Tier II Environmental Impact Statement process that will occur closer to construction, which is not anticipated for several years.
