Sidewalk Proposal for CSAH 46

Plans are being made to construct a bike path along the CSAH 46 corridor through Alexandria.  The plan would call for it to run along CSAH 46 near Woodland Elementary School.  There is also discussion for a sidewalk along this portion of CSAH near the Viking Plaza Mall.

(Alexandria, MN) As the remodel work begins on the Douglas Street location, the Douglas County Commissioners met in the upper floor chambers of the courthouse for their regular board meeting.
