Hwy 52 Hader to Zumbrota Study, Public Meeting June 21

ZUMBROTA, Minn. – The public is invited to attend a public meeting on June 21 to provide input on the future of Highway 52 from Hader to Zumbrota, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting will be held in person from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 21 at the Zumbrota VFW at 25 E 1st St., Zumbrota.

Community members shared their experiences on Highway 52 over the past year and the project team has created alternative designs with this feedback. Attendees will review these designs and provide input on how these alternatives meet their needs.

People unable to attend the meeting will be able to review the information and provide comments through an on-line survey.

MnDOT along with Goodhue County is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study. The study will examine the Highway 52 corridor between Hader and Zumbrota.

The study seeks to consider the benefits and impacts of proposed transportation system improvements to the environment, communities, and economy in the Highway 52 corridor. It considers elements that improve safety, manage access, improve freight movement, address agricultural transportation needs, manage congestion into the future, and encourage economic development.

To learn more about the project, visit the MnDOT project website at talk.dot.state.mn.us/hwy-52-hader-zumbrota-study, where you can sign up for email and text message updates, review information, and submit comments and questions.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all.
