MnDOT’s E-mail Updates deliver timely, targeted construction news


ST. PAUL, Minn. — More than 16,000 people have signed up for the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s E-mail Updates, a service that sends out information about major construction projects around the state—both current and future projects. Individuals can sign up for updates on roads they regularly travel—Interstate 35, Highway 169, Highway 61/Hastings Bridge and more—and get the latest reports on construction for their area.


“We work hard to make sure this information gets into the right people’s e-mail boxes with the most timely information as fast as we can,” said Kay Korsgaard, MnDOT Communications supervisor. “We are constantly expanding the e-mail lists to include new projects to be responsive to motorists’ needs.”
