Yellow Medicine County OKs replacing part of road to casino


GRANITE FALLS -- That long and winding road that leads the last few miles to Prairie's Edge Casino Resort is about to be replaced by a direct route to the front door.

The Yellow Medicine County Board of Commissioners gave their consent to a proposal that will allow the Upper Sioux Community to replace a portion of County Road 44 with a new extension of its own road, Prairie's Edge Lane. They approved the proposal on a four-to-one vote, with member Gary Johnson casting the no vote.
