The Alexandria City Council took the next step toward rebuilding a five-block section of Broadway in 2014.
At its meeting Monday night, the council unanimously approved a “statement of intent” to enter into an agreement with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to reconstruct and redesign Broadway between 3rd and 8th Avenue.
One council member had concerns whether MnDOT will live up to its end of the bargain. Read Wednesday's Echo Press for details.
