Highway 59 projectopen house set for Dec. 2

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — The public is invited to an open house in Mahnomen to learn more about an upcoming Highway 59 resurfacing project.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation plans to resurface Highway 59 from near Callaway to Winger and add a center-left turn lane through Mahnomen. The project is planned for 2017, although it may be completed in 2016 if funding becomes available.

The open house is scheduled from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2, at the White Earth Tribal and Community College, 2250 College Road, Mahnomen, Minn. A short presentation will begin at 5:30 p.m.

Representatives from MnDOT and project consultant WSB will provide an overview of the project, answer questions and take input about the proposed designs.

MnDOT staff will also be available to answer questions about a 2016 resurfacing project planned on Highway 200 between Mahnomen and Roy Lake.
