The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has issued its Findings of Fact and Conclusions (FOF&C) for the TH 169/101st Avenue Interchange Project. Under Minnesota Rules, MnDOT is the responsible governmental unit for the project. MnDOT had determined the proposed TH 169/101st Avenue Interchange Project as described in the EAW and FOF&C does not have the potential for significant environmental impacts. On February 27, 2017, MnDOT concluded that an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is not required, and issued a Negative Declaration Order for the project. This concludes the Minnesota state environmental review process for the project.
