Contractor:
Hoover Construction Co., Virginia, MN

The reconstruction improved safety and traffic flow along the Trunk Highway 61 route through Schroeder, MN. It also replaced a major river crossing, developed a wayside rest, and put one of the smallest communities in the State on the map. The design of the roadside environment helped slow the passing-through traffic and also provides visitors with a sense of arrival.
