Let’s Talk Transportation: Mora community invited to attend public event Feb. 22 for Hwy 65 and 23 study

Baxter, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the traveling public, area residents and businesses in Mora to provide feedback at a Let’s Talk Transportation event Wednesday, Feb. 22, for a Hwy 65 and 23 corridor study.

The meet-and-greet will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 22. It will be hosted at Mora City Hall, 101 S Lake St., Mora, MN.

There will not be a formal presentation; attendees may come and go at their leisure.

MnDOT’s corridor study in Mora covers the area on Hwy 65 between Ninth Street and the Ann River bridge and Hwy 23 between Hwy 65 and Mahogany Street. The study will identify future safety and access needs throughout the corridor segment. MnDOT will analyze current and future demographics, land use, development, and safety data to support the recommended improvements. The study will inform plans for reconstruction in 2030. 

Visit the Let’s Talk Transportation Hwy 65 and Hwy 23 corridor study web page for more information or contact Stephanie Castellanos, public engagement coordinator, at Stephanie.Castellanos@state.mn.us or 218-828-5822. 

MnDOT encourages participation by all as we believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide. 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.
