Rep. Brian Johnson Introduces Bill to Designate Chip A. Imker Memorial Highway

Thursday, February 23, 2017

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Representative Brian Johnson, R-Cambridge, introduced legislation this week that will designate a segment of Trunk Highway 65 in Isanti County from 305th Avenue NE to the northerly limit of Cambridge Township as the Chip A. Imker Memorial Highway. Imker, a Cambridge firefighter, tragically passed away in a training accident in 2011 at the age of 35. He was also a member of the Army National Guard and a volunteer wrestling coach for Cambridge-Isanti High School.

“Chip Imker was a dedicated public servant, father and friend to many in the Cambridge community,” said Rep. Brian Johnson. “Dedicating a portion of Highway 65 to him is a way to honor the memory of a man who tirelessly gave back to our community. I will be advocating for the memorial highway this session, and hope we can get it passed into law.”

Johnson can be reached by phone at (651) 296-4346. He can also be contacted via e-mail at, or via U.S. Mail at 421 State Office Building, St. Paul, MN 55155.
