ZUMBRO FALLS, Minn. – The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, Oct. 10 in Zumbro Falls to learn more about the Hwy 63 paving projects scheduled in 2018, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting will be held from 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 10 at Zumbro Falls City Hall, which is connected to the Zumbro Falls Fire Department on Highway 60.

MnDOT is planning to resurface Hwy 63 from the Hwy 63/75th St. NW roundabout near Rochester to the Zumbro River bridge in Zumbro Falls beginning in mid-June of 2018. The project will pave this stretch with concrete and replace four culverts across Hwy 63. It is expected to be completed in September.
