US Highway 10/MN Highway 25/County Road 53 Intersection Improvements
Funding Requested: $3,850,000
Total Project Cost: $49,185,000
Prepare final design, right-of-way acquisition, and prep work for an interchange at Trunk Highways US 10 and MN 25, County State Aid Highway 8, Sherburne County Road 52, Edgewood Street SE, and First Street in Becker.
The funding would be used to conduct a study and environmental review for a redesign to mitigate the job and tax base loss due to the decommissioning of the Sherco Power Plant by trying to attract high-quality industrial development to the city's business park. The project is an appropriate use of taxpayer funds because it improves the safety and mobility of the users of the state’s transportation system, and to eliminate existing dangerous conflicts between vehicles, trucks, rail, and pedestrian traffic.
