Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Rochester City Council voted last night to proceed with the development of a new roundabout at an increasingly busy intersection just off South Broadway at the south end of the city.
By a unanimous vote, the Council authorized a nearly $160,000 contract to design a single-lane roundabout at the intersection of 48th Street and Commercial Drive Southwest. The approved resolution also amends the city's 2023 Capital Improvement Program to allocate $2.5 million in the Municipal State Aid funds for the transportation improvement project.
The City Council also directed staff to prepare for a study session early next year to create a process for priority rising roadway improvements for future funding.
Christmas has arrived in Rochester...and it is the middle of the summer!
Is this normal? It is mid-summer but Christmas items have already been spotted on shelves in Rochester, Minnesota. I was walking around Hobby Lobby the other day and was walking around trying to find the best clearance items and accidentally ran into aisles full of Christmas decor.
