Highway 3 Construction Starts

Highway 3 construction has started in our neighborhood. The Minnesota Department of Transportation started taking trees down in preparation for construction of an eighty foot high retaining wall across the street from Careful Painting. My neighbor Arlene reports that she had no idea that this was going to happen. Bernie down the street at the River Legacy Motel is negotiating the sale of his property to Mendota Homes for the 140 townhomes planned for the old Kump property. Rumor is that he will take 1.1 million for his riverfront parcel. Arlene and I will each gladly accept one million for our river frontage!
