Roadways given to local jurisdictions

Two state roadways will be turned over to their respective local governments: Trunk Highway 297 that runs around the grounds of the Fergus Falls Regional Treatment Center and a segment of Trunk Highway 332 that runs southeasterly around International Falls.

Each year, the Department of Transportation reviews the state’s highway system to assure that each road still serves specific statewide purposes. As a result, the department recommends that some roads be turned back to local communities.

Sponsored by Rep. Bud Nornes (R-Fergus Falls) and Sen. Dan Skogen (DFL-Hewitt), each portion of the law is effective the day after MnDOT provides notice to the revisor’s office that the conditions required to transfer the route have been satisfied. Gov. Tim Pawlenty signed the law April 22.
