No road diet for Elton Hills Drive! As a homeowner on Elton Hills Drive for 40 years and living in Rochester since 1969, population was then 55,000 and now is over 100,000, it is one of the main arteries connecting schools and businesses of an ever-expanding community.

More people from our small towns are commuting to their jobs here. Traffic with school buses and transit buses, plus all the other people, move along smoothly.

Leave the road alone. We need four lanes; move on to the bridge repairs over the Zumbro on the east end that have been needed for the past year.
