MnDOT to host virtual public meeting for upcoming Hwy 194 intersection projects

Duluth, Minn. – MnDOT is hosting a virtual public meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 23, to discuss proposed intersection improvements along Highway 194 at Highway 53, Midway Road and Highway 2.

The improvements along Hwy 194 include a reduced conflict intersection at Highway 53, a roundabout at Midway Road (in partnership with St. Louis County) and a roundabout at Highway 2. The projects are slated for 2022 and 2023.

To prevent further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT is not hosting any in-person public meetings at this time. During this virtual meeting, MnDOT staff will give a presentation on the proposed intersection improvements, and there will be time to answer user-submitted questions. The virtual meeting begins at 5:30 p.m.
