Hwy 23 Highway Sign - 4 Lanes for You
Minnesota 23

MISSION STATEMENT: Citizens Advocating for a 4-Lane Minnesota Highway 23

Join the Hwy 23 Coalition in supporting a 4-lane highway from I-90 in southwest MN to I-35 in northeast MN, which would be the only four-lane highway running north to south, increasing safety, encouraging mobility, and promoting growth. Help create a better option for efficient, safe transportation throughout the corridor.

Attract and retain manufacturing and other high-paying jobs, businesses, and skilled workers.

Provide logistics and warehousing businesses, with just-in-time inventory models, the four-lane accessibility that their industry requires.

Provide safe, reliable transportation that is crucial for our key industry sectors and the traveling public.

Build safe and adequate highways for transport of agriculture commodities and livestock that is important to small towns and rural areas in Greater Minnesota.
