More than 28 miles of northern Minnesota trunk highway could honor those that have protected America.

Sponsored by Rep. Brita Sailer (DFL-Park Rapids) and Sen. Rod Skoe (DFL-Clearbrook), HF121/SF451* was approved 132-0 by the House April 7. Passed 64-1 by the Senate March 5, it awaits the governor’s signature.

The proposed “Clearwater County Veterans Memorial Highway” would be about 1.5 miles of Trunk Highway 200 from County State-Aid Highway 39 to its junction with Trunk Highway 92 at Zerkul, and about 27 miles of Trunk Highway 92 from that intersection north to County State-Aid Highway 5 in Clearbrook.

“This would be the continuation of a highway that started in Frazee in Becker County and is moving up through Clearwater County,” Sailer said.

The Transportation Department would design and erect appropriate signs, subject to the availability of nonstate funds to pay the costs. Sailer said the Bagley, Clearbrook and Gonvick American Legions would pay for the signage.
