Why not just apply for a waiver on the federal regulation banning interchanges within a certain distance. The Feds gave a waiver to BP for complying with safety regulations and have waived several companies from complying with Obama care….should be easy to get a waiver for this.

“the ramp closings have been devastating to businesses in the area of the new interchange.”
Devastating?!?!?! Sounds like an exaggeration…
The only retail stores there are Menards and an antique store.
Can anyone explain why Moorhead quit plowing the 200 yard section of road between the new 34th St. and Main Ave. SE? I’m talking about the section of road that runs across the north side of the Minnesota School of Business. It is already plowed for 100 yards to gain access to the Minnesota School of Business. Wouldn’t it make sense to just continue plowing the other 100 yards so people can just cross there to go to Menards, the antique shop, and the homes by Village Green Golf Course? Plus, the homeowners near the new 24th Ave. S would probably appreciate the reduced traffic near their neighborhood. Why the fight over the on/off ramps with an alternative that seems like it could be open tomorrow?
This way, people have access to where they are going, it doesn’t cost anything but fuel to plow, and we don’t end up with a freeway system like the Twin Cities with terrible on/off ramps causing traffic problems (not that Fargo/Moorhead really has any traffic jams).
