Brown County Gets Highway 258 16 Apr 13

Brown County now owns Highway 258 to Comfrey. The ownership of the state highway officially transferred from the Minnesota Department of Transportation to Brown County, as of Monday. Highway 258 from the south Brown County Line in Comfrey to Highway 14 is now Brown County Road 16. Motorists will see the highway identification signs changed this week. Highway 258 is one of several roadways that Mn/DOT is working to transfer to a proper level of government. Lower volume roadways have a difficult time competing for funds with high volume highways in the state.
