MnDOT at Mower County Fair Aug. 8-13 with snowplow, SnoGo, employment information

AUSTIN, Minn. – Visitors to the Mower County Fair in Austin Aug. 8-13 can stop by to talk with Minnesota Department of Transportation workers, check out information about highway maintenance jobs in southeast Minnesota and take a look at snow moving equipment.

MnDOT will be at the Mower County Fair through the week to answer questions about the highways and bridges, snowplowing and how you can apply for work in District 6, which is the 11-county MnDOT region in southeast Minnesota.

A snowplow and the SnoGo machine, both used in snow removal, will be on display south of the Plager Building on the Mower County Fairgrounds.

“We think MnDOT is a great place to work and build a career alongside other good people,” said Wayne Golberg, who supervises MnDOT highway maintenance work in the Austin area. “If you’re interested in highway maintenance jobs with us, we can help you learn more.”

The Mower County Fairgrounds are in Austin at 700 12th St. S.W. Admission is free, but there is a fee for parking on the grounds. You can learn more at http://www.mowercountyfair.com/.
