The public is invited to attend a public meeting on Wednesday, 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 pm 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.
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 and will consider the benefits and impacts of proposed transportation system improvements to the environment, communities, and economy.
It considers elements that improve safety, manage access, improve freight movement, address agricultural transportation needs, manage congestion into the future, and encourage economic development.
People unable to attend the meeting will be able to review the information and provide comments through an on-line survey. The link is available at www.q-mediagroup.com/news.
