Turn lane near school OK’d

The Mille Lacs County Board, in a 3-2 vote, approved a request to install a right-turn lane on the northbound side of Mille Lacs County Road 4 as it meets the south side of 12th Street North in Princeton. That is the intersection next to North Elementary that school and county officials say is very busy for about a half hour at the start and end of each school day.

The motion was to approve it at a maximum cost of $15,000 and contingent upon the Princeton School Board agreeing to pay half the cost.
