ARROWHEAD REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION
Final Report Available Regarding Future of Highway 210 through Jay Cooke State Park in NE Minnesota
(Duluth, MN) The public is invited to review the final report on the input process for the future of Highway 210 through Jay Cooke State Park in northeast Minnesota by visiting the following webpage:
The Arrowhead Regional Development Commission (ARDC) was asked by the Minnesota
Department of Transportation (MnDOT) to gather input regarding the future of Minnesota Highway 210 between Jay Cooke Road and Minnesota Highway 23. The roadway, which is mostly within Jay Cooke State Park, has been closed since the major flood event in June of 2012 when many locations were washed out or covered with debris. ARDC conducted a public survey and met with key stakeholders, including Minnesota Power, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MnDNR) the agency which serves as the administrators of Jay Cooke State Park), all surrounding cities and townships, Carlton County officials, and the public.
MnDOT will use the information from the survey and input sessions to decide if the roadway should be rebuilt, and, if so, what type of roadway should be built and where the corridor would be located.
