'This could be exciting,' mayor deadpans
Following an open house at Lauderdale City Hall Jan. 26 about Minnesota Department of Transportation plans to improve State Highway 280, those plans were presented to the city council, which lamented possible disruptions to life in the city.
Highway 280 runs parallel to the community's western border, providing links to Como and Larpenteur avenues. Access to each will be limited during construction.
