MnDOT seeks public input on alternatives for Hwy 169 in Elmore

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites community members to attend a public meeting on Thursday, May 23 from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Elmore Public Library Community Room, 107 E. Willis St.
During the open house style meeting, attendees can review design alternatives for Hwy 169 in Elmore and provide feedback. No formal presentation is planned, and attendees will be able to visit with the project team. The public can also view the alternatives and provide feedback through an online survey on the project website.

MnDOT is planning for a future project on Highway 169 in Elmore from E. Polton St. to the Minnesota/Iowa border. Beyond addressing pavement needs and aligning with the City of Elmore utility work, MnDOT is considering opportunities for safety, bicycle/pedestrian accommodations, and other improvements. In collaboration with the City and input from the community, MnDOT will evaluate the corridor, develop design alternatives, and arrive at a layout for a project tentatively planned for 2028 construction.
