Open house Oct. 29 in Wabasha for Hwy 60 & 61 paving projects in 2019

ROCHESTER, Minn. — The public is invited to an open house on Monday, Oct. 29 in Wabasha to learn more about two paving and culvert replacement projects in 2019, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

One project will resurface Hwy 60 between Zumbro Falls and Wabasha. The other will resurface Hwy 61 between Kellogg and Lake City.

Representatives of MnDOT will be available to answer questions and provide information from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Criminal Justice Center, 848 17th St. E. in Wabasha.

MnDOT is scheduled in 2019 to repave approximately 24 miles of Hwy 60 between Zumbro Falls and Wabasha and repave approximately 20 miles of Hwy 61 between Kellogg and north of Lake City, but not in Lake City. Crews will also replace several culverts along highways and reduced conflict intersections will be constructed on Hwy 61 at the intersections of Hwy 60, Shields Avenue, and County 30/Bruegger Valley Road near Wabasha.

Motorists will encounter detours during culvert replacement work on both projects and lane restrictions during paving and additional project work.

During the Oct. 29 open house, people may drop by at any time during the session to talk with the project managers and other MnDOT staff, learn more about the projects and ask questions. There is no formal presentation. Maps and information will be available for review.
