Plan for a public open house about the 169 Redefine project sometime this fall. We'll keep you in the loop as dates/times/locations are determined!
In the meantime, expect to continue seeing Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) crews out gathering data along Hwy 169 for the future 2023-2024 169 Redefine project. Crews will be surveying locations, gathering traffic and pedestrian counts, monitoring noise levels, obtaining soil and water samples, inspecting below ground infrastructure, and more. The work may require temporary lane or shoulder closures. Watch for road signs, workers and equipment in the area. This work will continue through August.
