The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced that the public is invited to attend an in-person information meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 31 in Austin to learn more about a construction project to replace and improve Interstate 90 bridges and interchanges in Austin. The meeting will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 31 at the Austin Public Library at 323 4th Ave. NE. The session is drop-in style to better fit individual schedules. People may arrive at any time to learn, ask questions, sign up for updates, and then leave at their convenience.
People unable to attend the in-person event will be able to review information and displays from the meeting afterward on the project website and provide comments on the plans.
