A bridge to somewhere
The countdown has begun. After years of having only three routes from Highway 3 westbound through Farmington -- four if you count 170th Street in Lakeville -- the weeks are ticking by until a fourth route is ready to open. The extension of 195th Street from Akin Road eastbound to...

City sets construction priorities
Though no new buildings are projected in Farmington's five-year future, plenty of road construction is. That means getting around the community will become easier. And, if all goes as planned, a few stoplights might come along the way. On Dec. 15, the Farmington City Council approved...

Intersections could be costly
A three-quarter intersection at the corner of County Road 50 and Flagstaff Avenue may be the cheapest alternative, but it has not received many favorable comments from residents. And Tom Severson of Marschall Bus Lines calls the suggestion "impossible" for busing. Building a full...

Getting around just got easier
Road construction around Farmington has pretty much come to an end for this season, which means it's a whole lot easier to get around these days. Highway 3 opened between Farmington and Rosemount after construction of a roundabout was completed right on schedule. On the same day,...
