DNR Acquisition of Land for Mill Towns Trail Announced

Senator Kevin Dahle (DFL-Northfield) has been working on options to expand the regional Mill Towns Trail for several years, working on bonding bills and local coordination to finance the corridor. Earlier today, the Minnesota DNR announced that it has acquired almost six miles of right-of-way in Rice County that will be used for the development of the trail. The purchase from Canadian Pacific is an uncommon opportunity to buy and develop a large section at once.
