Recently, we were introduced to another plan for the proposed railroad wye: reroute Highway 12 a little further south. That would make the bridge over the highway easier to build and less expensive. If they follow through with that plan, there is one more thing I’d like to suggest: reconstruct the stretch of Highway 12 from Pennock to Willmar.

Currently, the surface of the highway is relatively smooth, with a few bumps here and there. But the concrete underneath is aging. How much longer will it be before it will have to be replaced? Why not do the whole thing at once and eliminate additional work later on?
