Goodhue County commissioners paved the way Tuesday for improvements to County Highway 1 and hired the firm WSB from Minneapolis as the consultant for design services. County Engineer Greg Isakson asked for three preliminary designs for the County Highways 1 and 6 intersection, and also for the portion of County 1 and the sharp curve and hill in Featherstone. Isakson explained that $800,000 of federal funding was available for the project which fits into the five-year county plan. The plan calls for County 1 from County 51 to 53 to be graded in 2004 and paved in 2005.
