Jurisdictional Transfers and Control Section Revisions

This page provides descriptions of state highway system changes in the Minnesota Department of Transportation, Metropolitan Division’s district.  The district includes the counties of Anoka, Carver, Chisago, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington.  Changes to the system are most commonly jurisdictional transfer of a state highway resulting from its replacement by a new state highway.  Typically jurisdictional transfers are from state to county.  As transfers occur notice will be posted here with a description of the route including termini, a map, and identification of the agency with responsibility for the highway. 


State highways are divided into segments called control sections administrative and record keeping purposes.  Theses segments are typically revised as the result of jurisdictional transfers or the creation of new highway segments. Inclusion of control section letters here is primarily for the benefit of Metropolitan Division personnel.

Minnesota Highway 312

(MN) 312 is a temporary route number assigned to new United States (US) 212 in Carver and Hennepin counties. It is a temporary designation until construction along the entire proposed alignment for new US 212 is complete. Once construction is complete the US 212 route designation will be moved from its current location to the new highway, and the MN 312 will be eliminated.

Construction has begun along the new alignment and will be open to traffic prior to completion of the entire new highway. Since the old route and portions of the new route will be open to traffic simultaneously, a temporary number is needed to distinguish between the two routes.
