Road construction has had quite an impact on Pine City over the past several months. Businesses along Old Highway 61 South, as well as County Road 8 (3rd Avenue SE) and Historic 5th Street have surely felt the effects.
“We all know good roads and sidewalks are important for business activity,” said Nathan Johnson, Pine City’s community development director. “But during the projects, we oftentimes hear that a negative affect is felt.”
That is why, at its recent meeting, the Pine City Economic Development Authority approved the purchase of advertising a on local radio station to encourage local support of the businesses most affected. The ad will play on Red Rock Radio (WCMP/WXCX) beginning this week.
