During the session, MnDOT will discuss the plan for 2020. People may drop by at any time during the session. Maps and information will be available for review.

In 2020, MnDOT will be resurfacing eastbound Interstate 90 from Freeborn County Road 46 east of Albert Lea to Highway 105 at Austin. The unbonded concrete overlay will only be on eastbound lanes, but it will affect ramps and traffic in both directions.
