Email News Alerts

A re-striping project will add a northbound lane to Highway 29 North in Alexandria.

It should also end the problem of vehicles trying to merge into one lane after turning left onto Highway 29 (Nokomis Street) from 3rd Avenue East.


The Alexandria City Council unanimously approved the new layout, which is set to take place next summer.
