Virtual public meeting set March 31 for project from Wabasha to Minnesota City

WABASHA, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend a virtual meeting Wednesday, March 31, 2021, to learn about a planned project that includes resurfacing 27 miles of southbound Hwy 61 from Wabasha to Minnesota City, bridge work, improvements of Hwy 74 in Weaver and installation of a reduced conflict intersection at Hwy 61 and Hwy 42.

The online meeting begins at 6 p.m. and lasts approximately one hour. Members of the project management team will provide a presentation followed by a question and answer session. Attendees can join the meeting online or participate by phone. A meeting link, phone number and other information are listed on the Hwy 61 project website. To prevent the further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT has indefinitely postponed all in-person public events. The event will be recorded and posted to the project website for those unable to attend.

Construction is scheduled to begin in 2022. People can stay connected with the project by signing up for email updates and through the project website.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all.
