Open house set Feb. 1 to learn about I-35 concrete overlay at Faribault

FARIBAULT, Minn. – The public is invited to an open house Thursday, Feb. 1 in Faribault to learn more about this summer’s southbound Interstate 35 concrete overlay project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Members of the MnDOT design team will be available to answer questions and gather input from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the first floor public meeting room in Faribault City Hall, 208 First Ave. N.W.

In July, a MnDOT contractor will pave approximately 4 miles of southbound I-35 from Rice County Road 9 to Highway 21 with an unbonded concrete overlay. Additionally, crews will repave the Highway 21 exit ramp, extend the deceleration lane off of southbound I-35 to Highway 21 and repair culverts on I-35.

Lane changes and detours will be part of the project, so the public can learn more about those details and how to connect with additional information to stay informed about the project through its completion in fall of 2018.

People may drop by at any time during the session to offer feedback, ask questions and learn more about the project. No formal presentation is planned.
