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