MnDOT to host public open house on May 12 for Hwy 87 complete streets project in Frazee

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an open house on Thursday, May 12, from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., to discuss upcoming construction on Highway 87 in the City of Frazee. The open house will be held at the Frazee Event Center, 114 Lake Street N. 

Residents, business owners, and area visitors and commuters are encouraged to attend. There will be no formal presentation. Please stop in whenever it is convenient.

Starting May 31, MnDOT will reconstruct Highway 87 from Highway 10 to North River Drive in the City of Frazee. The “complete streets” project includes resurfacing and reconstructing Highway 87, replacing city utilities, and improving pedestrian and bicycle access and accommodations. Construction will be completed in stages, with changing detours and/or lane shifts or closures. The project is expected to be completed in October.

For those who cannot attend the in-person event or would prefer to get information virtually, all upcoming construction information will be available on the project website mndot.gov/d4/projects/frazee. Comments and questions can be submitted via a form on the project website or contact MnDOT.

Visit the project website for more information about the project and to sign up for project email updates.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide. If you feel you need a reasonable accommodation in order to fully participate in this event, such as an ASL or spoken language interpreter, or need documents in an alternate format, such as braille or large print, please contact: Janet Miller at 651-366-4720 or e-mail ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
