MnDOT seeks public input on Hwy 61 project from Wabasha to Minnesota City

WABASHA, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to share their feedback through an online survey about the Hwy 61 project from Wabasha to Minnesota City.
Input will help MnDOT better understand how the highway is used and what's important to the public. The survey is open through Thursday, June 10.

The project includes resurfacing 27 miles of southbound Hwy 61 from Wabasha to Minnesota City, bridge work, improvements of Hwy 74 in Weaver and installation of a reduced conflict intersection at Hwy 61 and Hwy 42. Construction is scheduled to begin in 2022.

People can stay connected with the project by signing up for email and text message updates and through the project website.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. If you need an ASL, a foreign language interpreter, or other reasonable accommodation, or need documents in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), please email your request to Janet Miller at ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us or call 651-366-4720.
