The Partnership received confirmation from MnDOT this week that all required Highway 14 resolutions and support letters have been submitted by our local governments and chambers of commerce. This means that all Highway 14 projects will receive the full 100 points available in the “community consensus” category of MnDOT’s Corridors of Commerce project scoring and selection system.
As a refresher, MnDOT’s scoring system consists of seven scoring categories: return on investment, economic impact, freight efficiency, safety improvements, regional connections, policy objectives, and community consensus. Thanks to our members adopting these resolutions and submitting letters of support, we can rest assured that Highway 14 will receive all available points in that final category. The passion and commitment of Highway 14 Partnership members has always been the organization’s strongest asset. This is just the latest example.
Stay tuned for updates on the timing of project awards.
