Speed Increase Proposed for the Cut-Across


Pennington County officials are calling for a Minnesota Department of Transportation speed-study on County State-Aid Highway Three.

Pennington County Engineer Mike Flaagan says he has been in contact with Polk County authorities concerning a speed-study related to the highway commonly referred to as the St. Hilaire Cut-Across.

Flaagan says MNDOT will consider shoulder width, passing zones, access points, and crash-rates during the study, which he says if approved, would last a few months.

Also approved Tuesday, the purchase of a packer by Handy Hitch. Flaagan says this was a budgeted item, with a price tag of just over $29,000.
