ROCHESTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be holding a public outreach meeting on Thursday, June 19 to review the Winona Bridge project-related community goals collected from the March 27 community meeting, discuss recommendations to help achieve the goals, and to define risks to achieving the goals. 

The meeting will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., June 19 at Wanek Hall, Winona Historical Center, 160 Johnson Street, Winona, MN 55987.

"I encourage anyone with an interest in this project to attend the meeting,” said Winona Mayor Mark Peterson. “MnDOT has done an excellent job of keeping the council and community informed." 

As previously announced, MnDOT is also holding a business-oriented public meeting 9 a.m. to noon, Tuesday, May 20 for Winona area vendors to meet with the Ames Construction team. This meeting is directed toward vendors such as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise, Targeted Business Group and veterans who want to see what opportunities are available for them to quote portions of the work or to supply materials.

The Winona Bridge Project began detailed planning in 2009 and is expected to begin construction work this June.  For more information on the project go to the MnDOT project page at www.mndot.gov/winonabridge. There is also a Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WinonaBridge.
