ARDC Planning, on behalf of the Minnesota Department of Transportation District One, is working with stakeholders in International Falls and Ranier to develop a transportation plan for northeast Koochiching County, Minnesota.

A primary goal of the plan is to develop a shared community vision for Highway 11/71 through International Falls, which is currently scheduled for improvements in 2027. A secondary goal is to develop a vision for northeast Koochiching County’s transportation system, which may need a plan to leverage grants and other available funding.

The planning process is taking place between September 2020 and April 2021.
