MnDOT’s corridor study in Mora covers the area on Highway 65 between Ninth Street and the Ann River bridge and Highway 23 between Highway 65 and Mahogany Street. The study will identify future safety and access needs throughout the corridor segment. MnDOT will analyze current and future demographics, land use, development, and safety data to support the recommended improvements. The study will inform plans for reconstruction in 2030.
