I-90 project meeting slated

FAIRMONT — The Minnesota Department of Transportation will host an open house from 4-6 p.m. Feb. 28 at the Holiday Inn, Fairmont, to address plans for Interstate 90 construction scheduled this year.

Businesses that rely on traffic from Interstate 90 exits 99 and 102 are encouraged to attend and are asked to RSVP at FairmontChamber.org.

MnDOT staff and the contractor will answer questions and share information, including staging and closures at various interchanges.

The project includes resurfacing the westbound lanes between Sherburn and Fairmont and the eastbound lanes for about a mile west of Fairmont. Four bridges will be repaired and lighting replaced. More information on this project (including a construction staging map) as well as other I-90 preservation projects in southwestern Minnesota can be found at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/I90preserve/index.html
