Public Outreach



Public Open Houses

In an effort to involve stakeholders early and often, MnDOT and OCRRA will hold several open houses throughout the course of this study to present information about the study process and take public comments and input. The first open house was held on July 9, 2012. Subsequent open house information will be posted on this page when it is available.
