MnDOT to host public meeting for the Hwy 60 Mountain Lake project

MOUNTAIN LAKE, Minn. – The public is invited to attend a public meeting on Nov. 16 to learn about a future project and share input on Highway 60 in Mountain Lake, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Beyond pavement needs, MnDOT is studying the project area for opportunities to improve safety and traffic flow at three key Cottonwood County intersections:

  • Hwy 60 and Co. Rd. 27 on the west end of Mountain Lake
  • Hwy 60 and Co. Rd. 1
  • Hwy 60 and Co. Rd. 27 on the east end of Mountain Lake

The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16 at the Mountain Lake Community Center, 1027 Second Avenue. No formal presentation is planned; attendees will be able to talk with project staff and share feedback on potential roadway improvements. Those unable to attend can take an online survey to provide comments on Highway 60.

More information
In collaboration with Cottonwood County, the City of Mountain Lake, and input from the community, MnDOT will evaluate the corridor, develop design alternatives, and arrive at a layout for a future project. From fall 2023 through summer 2024, the community will have opportunities to provide feedback and give input on the project area as well as the design alternatives. The preferred alternative for the future project will be selected by winter 2024.
