Hwy 14 Funding Fight 28 Apr 12

The Mayor of North Mankato is asking area residents to contact Governor Dayton and state lawmakers as part of a new push for funding the expansion of Highway 14 from North Mankato to New Ulm. North Mankato Mayor Mark Dehen is hoping the pressure on the governor and legislature will prompt Mn/DOT to back away from a new policy favoring small-scale, lower cost options for upgrading the highway. He is encouraging citizens concerned about the dangerous stretch of highway to call their local lawmakers as well as to support FaceBook and Twitter pages devoted to Highway 14.
