ROCHESTER, Minn. – The public is invited to attend a public meeting on September 12 to learn more about a new roundabout at the intersection of Hwy 63 and Olmsted Co. Rd. 112, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The meeting will be held in person from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, September 12 at the Cascade Township Hall at 2025 75th St. NE, Rochester, MN.  Attendees will learn about the project and provide feedback on potential issues or concerns that the project team should know about during project planning.

MnDOT along with Olmsted County is planning to build a roundabout at the intersection of Co. Rd. 112 and Hwy 63, near Rochester. With limited gaps in traffic to cross the intersection and increased traffic volume, drivers are exhibiting impatient behavior that has led to a sustained history of crashes. This project will help to reduce crashes and improve driver safety by regulating traffic flow.

To learn more about the project, visit the MnDOT project website at talk.dot.state.mn.us/hwy63-cr112, where you can sign up for email and text message updates, review information, and submit comments and questions.

Olmsted County and MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. If you need an ASL, 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@state.mn.us or call 651-366-4720.
