City Officials Advocate for I-94 in D.C.

Posted to City Spotlight on July 27, 2022 at 3:55 PM by Haley Foster

US DOT - DC.July2022Two weeks ago Councilmember Charlotte Gabler and Monticello’s city administrator participated in the I-94 Coalition’s fly-in trip to Washington, D.C. They joined representatives from St. Michael, Albertville, Otsego, and Wright County to advocate for the funding needed to complete the expansion of I-94 between Albertville and Monticello.

This is the final “gap” to fill to complete the I-94 upgrades from the Twin Cities to St. Cloud, which will enhance safety and encourage valuable economic growth in our region. I-94 is a vital corridor, and we want to do whatever we can to support ongoing efforts to strengthen and enhance it!

What is the I-94 Coalition?

The City of Monticello often joins with partners to help complete projects that benefit our community as part of the wider region.

Monticello is a member of the I-94 Corridor Coalition and is participating in the efforts to enhance the interstate between the Twin Cities metro and St. Cloud. The coalition is comprised of dedicated local governments, private businesses, local chambers of commerce, and other stakeholders affected by the transportation challenges facing Minnesota.

They are taking a comprehensive approach to expanding the capacity of the corridor to benefit communities and businesses along the entire corridor. Click here to learn more about the coalition and the project our team was supporting in D.C.
