MnDOT to host Hwy 19 improvements project meeting May 22 in Northfield

NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The public is invited to attend a public meeting on May 22 in Northfield to learn about potential improvements to Highway 19, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 22 from 6-8 p.m. at the Northfield City Hall, 801 Washington St. in Northfield. The meeting will focus on the eastern half of the project corridor located between Interstate-35 and Highway 3 in Northfield. 

MnDOT staff will share the details of the project with area motorists and residents. Attendees can learn about the Highway 19 study, which prepares for two repaving projects on both sides of I-35 in 2027 and 2030. MnDOT is also considering other improvements, such as turn lanes, guardrail, lighting, and snow fences. The public is invited to review concept drawings of potential improvements and share feedback with the project team. There will be no formal presentation. Attendees can arrive and leave at any time. People who are unable to attend the meeting will be able to review the materials afterward on the project website and provide comments.

For more information about the project or to sign up for email/text message updates, please visit the Highway 19 project webpage.

An in-person meeting to review Highway 19 on the west side of I-35 was held in April in Lonsdale.
