Public Meeting

A public information meeting is scheduled on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at Holyoke Town Hall, 947 County Road 8, Holyoke, MN 55749.

The meeting will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and participants are invited to come and go as they please. There will be no formal presentation.

This gathering will provide the public a brief overview of the project and an opportunity to view project layouts. Staff will also be on hand to answer questions about the removal of the old Soo Line Railroad Bridge over Highway 23. Both projects will be constructed in 2019 using the same detour.
