Press Release: US 169 Pedestrian Underpass in Jordan listed in Congressional Appropriations Bill

US 169 Pedestrian Underpass in Jordan Listed in Congressional Appropriations Bill

March 11, 2022, Jordan, MN – The City of Jordan’s request to Congress for a new pedestrian underpass of US 169 near Creek Lane was included omnibus bill passed by the US House of Representatives and US Senate on Friday. Expected to be signed into law by President Biden, the bill targets $1,124,000 in federal funding for the new pedestrian underpass which is planned to be constructed in cooperation with a planned nearby interchange at US 169 / TH 282 / CR 9.

“The success of this funding is due to the work of many over the past decade” said Jordan Mayor Mike Franklin.

Mayor Franklin continued “The City of Jordan sincerely thanks US Representative Angie Craig, US Senators Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, current and past City Council members for their vision and dedication to the project, the Scott County Board and Staff, State Representative Tony Albright, and State Senator Eric Pratt.”

US Highway 169 divides the City of Jordan, separating more than 700 homes from essential businesses like grocery and retail stores, banks, restaurants, and child care. Today, some pedestrians choose to brave the 55 mile-per-hour traffic at a large and intimidating signalized intersection and others opt for worn, floodprone footpaths under a nearby bridge over Sand Creek. Since 2010 the City of Jordan has been seeking funding to construct a pedestrian underpass of US 169 to close this critical gap, making it reasonably accessible for all users and address clear safety issues. The project is a clear safety benefit for users of all ages, abilities, and incomes.

“The City of Jordan is grateful for these partnerships and looks forward to the bill being signed into law” Franklin concluded.
