HOMER, Minn. — The public is invited to an open house Wednesday in Homer to learn more about the improvements planned for Highway 61 during a paving project in 2019 from Homer to Interstate 90, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Representatives of MnDOT will be available to answer questions and provide information from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Homer Town Hall, 36087 Old Homer Road.

MnDOT is scheduled in 2019 to repave Highway 61 between Homer and I-90 with blacktop. Crews will also repave the frontage roads, repair culverts and replace guardrail. Motorists will encounter single-lane traffic and brief closures of intersections during the paving operation.

People may drop by at any time during Wednesday's session to talk with the project manager and other MnDOT staff, learn more about the project and ask questions. There is no formal presentation. Maps and information will be available for review.
