Open house set for March 26 in Hollandale to learn about Hwy 251 project

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The public is invited to attend an open house on Tuesday, March 26 in Hollandale to learn more about the Hwy 251 paving project in 2020, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Representatives of MnDOT will be available to answer questions and provide information from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., March 26 at the Hollandale Village Hall, 102 Park Ave E. People may drop by at any time during the session to learn more about the project, offer feedback, and ask questions. Maps and information will be available. There is no formal presentation.

The project will resurface approximately 16.7 miles of Hwy 251 from Interstate 35 east to Hwy 218, mostly in Freeborn County, with a small portion of Mower County included. Approach panels will be replaced on the bridge over I-35. Additionally, culvert/pipes will be replaced along the route and turns lanes will be installed at Freeborn County Road 26. Construction is planned in 2020. Once complete, this project will improve safety and extend the service life of the highway, bridges and drainage systems.

To learn more about the project or sign up for email updates, go to the MnDOT project website at mndot.gov/d6/projects/hwy251-resurfacing/.
