MnDOT seeks public input on draft design concepts for Hwy 22 and Hwy 109 in Wells

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) invites the public to provide feedback on draft design concepts for Hwy 22 and the west segment of Hwy 109 in Wells through Thursday, August 5. Input is also being collected on the current demonstration project that’s testing out potential bicycle and pedestrian improvements, including bike lanes on Hwy 109 and curb extensions at the intersection of Hwy 22/3rd St. SW. The public can view the draft design concepts and demonstration project photos, as well as provide feedback with a comment map and survey on the project website: mndot.gov/d7/projects/hwy22wells/meetings.html.
Additionally, MnDOT staff will be at the Wells Farmers Market on Wednesday, July 14 from 4 – 6 p.m. in the Marketplace Foods parking lot (190 3rd St. NE, Wells). Community members will be able to learn more about the project, review the draft design concepts, and provide input.

Public feedback will help MnDOT determine safety improvements for people who walk, bike or drive for a future reconstruction project. Construction on Hwy 22 and Hwy 109 is tentatively planned for 2026. The purpose of this construction is to improve pavement, utilities, and pedestrian and bicyclist accommodations.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. If you need an ASL, a foreign language interpreter, or other reasonable accommodation, or need documents in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), please email your request to Janet Miller at adarequest.dot@state.mn.us or call 651-366-4720.
