MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an open house on Wednesday, April 17 from 3:30 to 5:00 pm at the New Ulm Municipal Airport, 1617 Highway 14, to learn about the upcoming Highway 14/Highland Avenue roundabout project in New Ulm and prepare for construction expected to begin in early May.
