ALEXANDRIA — The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the City of Alexandria are hosting an in-person open house on Thursday, Oct. 6, from 5-7 p.m., to discuss the Highway 29 corridor study in downtown Alexandria. The event will be held at the Douglas County Public Works Building, 526 Willow Dr. in Alexandria.

The study will identify community concerns and consider possible alternatives that will better accommodate business owners, motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. MnDOT and city staff, along with the consultant, are currently seeking feedback from the public on community goals for the corridor.

Everyone is welcome to attend the open house to learn more information about the study. Representatives of the project team will be available to discuss details and answer questions. Information boards will be setup to allow attendees the opportunity to provide input and participate in discussions specific to Highway 29.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
