MnDOT to host open house Feb. 12 for Hwy 22/Hwy 109 project in Wells

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend an in-person open house on Monday, Feb. 12 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. at the Wells Community Center, 189 2nd St. SE, to learn about the Highway 22/Highway 109 project. There is no formal presentation, and attendees are welcome to arrive anytime.

Staff from MnDOT will be available to answer questions and provide more information about the project. Following the open house, there will be a public hearing for the project during the Wells City Council meeting starting at 5 p.m.

MnDOT will reconstruct Highway 22 from the northern intersection with Highway 109 to just south of 12th St. SW, as well as Highway 109 from west of Rose Hill Cemetery to Highway 22, to improve the pavement, utilities, and bicycle/pedestrian accommodations. With input from the City of Wells, local residents and other project stakeholders, MnDOT developed concepts and arrived at a layout for 2026 – 2027 construction.
