Tuesday provides two chances for public input on MnDOT Highway 60 project

Windom City Administrator Steve Nasby recently revealed that MnDOT seeks to hold an open house to gather public input for their proposed Highway 60 Corridor project in 2025.

“It will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. at the Community Center,” said Nasby, “so if people have opinions about the highway or potential changes, or want it back the way it was, I encourage you to come and let MnDOT know that.”

During the open house style meeting, attendees can learn more about plans for 2025 construction, as well as the proposed restriping of four to three lanes. There is no formal presentation and people are welcome to arrive at any time, MnDOT informed.

A link to preview the project is available on the internet highway at mndot.gov/d7/projects/hwy60windompilot.

The Community Center is located at 1750 Cottonwood Lake Drive. The Windom City Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. on that same night and Nasby said a formal public hearing on the issue will take place at that public council meeting. The council recently voted to also hold the city council meeting at the Community Center (it is normally held in City Hall, downtown) so that citizens do not have to travel to two different locations to give their input.

Mayor Dominic Jones voiced his desire that a throng of citizens will come to both events and make their opinions and perspectives known. All the council members also asked the public to please come out and make citizen opinions clear.
