A new way of flowing traffic in and around Highway 29 just south of the Interstate 94 interchange is being proposed - a "roundabout" intersection.


The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) met with city and county leaders this week to talk about placing the roundabout on Highway 29 South and County Roads 28 (the road to Lake Andrew) and 87 (that leads to Central Specialties and the shooting range).
