Meeting with the Minnesota Department of Transportation

The next transportation committee meeting will be held Oct. 24 on Zoom from 7–9 p.m. Please note that this is one week earlier than usual and will substitute for the regularly scheduled meeting.

This meeting will include a special presentation and discussion with the Minnesota Department of Transportation about planned work scheduled in 2026 on and around Highway 280. This work will affect cross streets including Energy Park Drive, Territorial Road and Franklin and Wabash Avenues, including pedestrian and bike infrastructure as well as the highway itself. MnDOT also plans to remove the left turn lane on 280 at Broadway and resurface the lanes, possibly raising the speed limit — which SAPCC has opposed in the past.

Please join us to give your input on this project. For the Zoom link, please email
