After business leaders and residents voiced support for the Interstate 90 Undercrossing, City Council set aside environmental concerns and voted Monday to approve a pact crucial to the development of the roadway.
Residents raised concerns in July about wetlands on U.S. Postal Service property near the undercrossing site, prompting officials to review the development agreement. City and postal service officials negotiated a development agreement to allow the city use of a right of way on the land.
Councilman David Kappler supported the agreement, but said before the vote that he had concerns with “the sausage making of this process.”
