MnDOT's Hwy 210/169 Open House set for January 23rd

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is inviting members of the public to attend an informational open house Thursday, January 23rd on the future road construction project for Highway 210/Highway 169 set to begin in 2022. We asked project manager Luke Wehseler what steps of preparation have been taken early in the process.


Despite winter being in full effect, Wehseler and his group are still very active.


The 11-mile projects begins at the Ripple River in Aitkin and ends at the Mississippi River north of Hassman, residents and businesses along that route will want to attend the meeting. Wehseler wants to hear from you!


The open house is set for Thursday, January 23rd from 4-6pm at the Aitkin Public Library. There will not be a formal presentation and you can show up anytime. Project staff will also be in attendance to answer any questions and layouts of the project will be on display. If you are unable to attend, send your comments or concerns by February 4th to Luke Wehseler’s email or call 218-828-5721.
