Rochester, Minnesota Road Diet Watch: Elton Hills Drive road diet opponents win out for now

Potential road changes along busy Elton Hills Drive have garnered a lot of talk and community concern lately, prompting the formation of the group “Take Back Our Streets Rochester.”

Rochester City Council debating decreasing the number of traffic lanes, in exchange for other changes, aimed at improving safety. But Monday night, the “no’s” won out, at least for now, as the “road diet” plan has been put on the back burner.
