77thunderpassWhat a day! Today was pretty much dedicated to visiting with Chamber members along 77th/78th street. In addition to GrowMN! data being collected, I was able to discuss the future of the 77th Street Underpass with RCOC Chamber members.

Collectively, all agree that the underpass would be a great addition to the Richfield landscape and would launch an economic boom along Cedar/494. The project is in the Governor’s bonding bill; City Staff and Government are more optimistic than ever about this project becoming a reality! Rep. Linda Slocum and Sen. Melissa Wicklund have worked tirelessly to promote this legislation; a decision will be made when the session comes to a close in May.
