Virtual Open House

MnDOT invites you to an online virtual open house for the future Hwy 23 improvement project from Foley to Milaca in 2022. The venue runs July 20 through Aug. 7, 2020.

The open house is hosted on the project webpage and community members are invited to attend as it is convenient for them.

You’ll have an opportunity to learn project details, watch a project video, view design layouts, sign up for future email updates, ask questions and provide feedback.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. The Hwy 23 project is part of the communities of Foley, Ronneby, Oak Park, Foreston and Milaca, in Benton and Mille Lacs counties.  We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide.

If you have any questions or would like to provide comments on the project before Aug. 7, 2020, contact:

Russell Fellbaum, Project Development Manager 320-223-6536
