Planning an exit strategy

Grady Kinghorn, left, a developer based in the Dayton and Rogers area, speaks with another individual during the final public open house on the Brockton Lane Interchange project Sept. 25. Project leaders and agency representatives were on hand to visit with the public and answer questions about the offset design alternative, which is the official design selection for both Dayton and Rogers councils.

Public comment from the event will be gathered and presented to the project leaders as they move forward. The design will continue to undergo more detailed analysis and refinement based on comments generated during MnDOT’s review. A project implementation plan has also been prepared, describing possible construction phases, associated land acquisitions necessary for construction and right of way, and planning level cost estimates. Completion of the design layout, environmental documentation and project implementation plan will help position the project for future funding opportunities.
