                         Laws of Minnesota 1984 

                        CHAPTER 465-S.F.No. 887 
           An act relating to transportation; providing for the 
          inclusion of former municipal state-aid streets in the 
          county state-aid highway system; amending Minnesota 
          Statutes 1982, section 162.02, subdivision 1, and by 
          adding a subdivision. 
    Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes, 1982, section 162.02, 
subdivision 1, is amended to read: 
    Subdivision 1.  [CREATION.] There is created a county 
state-aid highway system which shall must be established, 
located, constructed, reconstructed, improved, and maintained as 
public highways by the several counties under rules and 
regulations not inconsistent with this section made and 
promulgated by the commissioner as hereinafter provided in this 
chapter.  The several counties are vested with all the rights, 
title, easements, and their appurtenances thereto appertaining, 
held by or vested in any of the towns or municipal subdivision 
thereof subdivisions or dedicated to the public use prior to the 
time any such a road or any portion thereof of a road is taken 
over by the county as a county state-aid highway.  If a county 
state-aid highway is established over a center portion of any a 
street in a city having a population of over 5,000 or more, then 
the remaining portion of the street may be established as a 
municipal state-aid street. 
    Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1982, section 162.02, is 
amended by adding a subdivision to read: 
STREETS.] Former municipal state-aid streets located in a city 
that previously received money from the municipal state-aid 
street fund but whose population fell below 5,000 under the 1980 
federal census must be included in the county state-aid highway 
system, subject to the approval of the governing bodies of the 
city and the county.  An action taken by a county board 
approving the inclusion of a former municipal state-aid street 
in the county state-aid highway system must also include a 
resolution taking over the street as a county highway under 
section 163.11.  The county state-aid highway system is 
increased in extent by the addition of the mileage of municipal 
state-aid streets reverting or turned over to the jurisdiction 
of the counties under this subdivision.  
    Sec. 3.  [EFFECTIVE DATE.] 
    Section 1 is effective the day following final enactment. 
Section 2 is effective January 1, 1984. 
    Approved April 25, 1984
