Great, we are going to spend $100M to get in/out of St. Paul but only if you are heading north. For those of us that head south we still get to deal with the 45MPH zone from University south to 7th street. How about we spend $1,000 on some new speed limit signs for those that head south?

MNDOT and the state cannot legally change the speed limit on 35E south of downtown. Folks living near 35E sued the state and the courts ruled that 35E needs to have a truck restriction and a 45 MPH speed limit.

Ask MNDOT to publicly explain why they have extended the project on 35 in Lakeville and New Market into 2014.

reader2580: I know what you said is true, but I still don't like it. A Judge decided for eternity how traffic can flow in and out of St. Paul. We may as well have an Emperor and give up the notion of Representative Government.

Mn/DOT picking one of the most expensive bids is still news?

And here we go again. This is how your money is being spent. No problem with the concept of getting the best value may not mean the lowest price. Serious problem with a system that allows the "preferred" bidder to change their bid using secret info from the state. There's a payoff somewhere. If the media still had the resources maybe they could investigate. They'd have plenty to work with.
