Parks superintendent Miller said that under federal provisions, transportation projects cannot go through park land or historic sites if a feasible alternative can be found. She said the park board and federal authorities, including the Department of the Interior and the Federal Transportation Administration, will make those determinations.

Metropolitan Council Chair Susan Haigh said she hopes the council, with the support of other project funders and the consent of affected communities, can make a decision on whether to tunnel or reroute by March 30.
