MnDOT seeking public input on future of Hwy 52 from Hader to Zumbrota

(ABC 6 News) – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) announced that the public is invited to an upcoming meeting to provide input on the future of Highway 52 from Hader to Zumbrota.

The meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 21 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Zumbrota VFW, located at 25 E. 1st St.

The project team has created alternative designs from community members who have shared their experiences on Highway 52 over the past year. Attendees of the meeting will review these designs and provide input on how these alternatives meet their needs, according to MnDOT.

MnDOT along with Goodhue County is conducting a Planning and Environmental Linkages (PEL) study. The study will specifically examine the Highway 52 corridor between Hader and Zumbrota.
