Supplement to Historic Roadside Development Structures on Minnesota Trunk Highways

Image
Date Created
2005
Description
Note: Some corrections/changes have been made in this supplement (November 1, 2006; August 26, 2008). In 2002-2004 the Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT), working through its consultant Gemini Research, conducted a cultural resources survey and evaluation of eight properties to be added to Mn/DOT's Historic Roadside Development Structures Inventory. The addition of the eight brings the total inventory to 110 properties. Gemini Research recommends that three of the eight newly-inventoried properties are eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. This document, intended as a supplement to the 1998 inventory report Historic Roadside Development Structures on Minnesota Trunk Highways, adds the eight new properties to the inventory, updates key inventory information, and corrects selected errors in the original inventory. The updated information lists, for example, the historic preservation treatment reports that Mn/DOT has prepared for National Register-eligible and -listed sites. The report also briefly discusses serious threats facing the inventory sites including their deteriorating physical condition.

The Economic Effects of Interstate 94 on Trunk Highway 10 Communities between Moorhead and St. Cloud

Image
Date Created
1972-10
Description
This report asks the question, "What happens to a series of communities along a high-type blacktop and concrete roadway when a new highway is constructed in a nearly parallel location?" Previous economic impact studies by the Minnesota Department of Highways have asked the same question numerous times. However, they have concentrated efforts on one or more towns that have been bypassed. This study analyzes several communities along Trunk Highway 10 in west central Minnesota to determine if there have been any obvious signs of either growth or stagnation since Interstate Highway 94 was completed.
