Mankato, Minn. – Minnesota State University, Mankato senior civil engineering students will present their design project feasibility study on a County State Aid Highway 90 expansion project in a town hall meeting Wednesday, Nov. 18 from 6-7:30 p.m. on campus in Centennial Student Union’s Ostrander Auditorium.

The town hall meeting, free and open to the public, will consist of a 45-minute presentation followed by time for questions. Input received from the public will be considered during the spring semester’s project design phase.

The expansion project consists of a roadway connecting County State Aid Highway 90 (near St. Clair, Minn.) at Minnesota Highway 83 to the intersection of Minnesota Highway 60 (near Madison Lake, Minn.) and U.S. Highway 14.

The intersection of Minnesota Highway 83 and County State Aid Highway 90 is located 5 miles southeast of Mankato, and the intersection of U.S. Highway 14 and Minnesota Highway 60 is located 2 miles east of Eagle Lake, Minn.

Key aspects of this project include a bridge crossing the Le Sueur River and a possible interchange at U.S. Highway 14 and Minnesota Highway 60. Two possible additions include a bike trail and a roundabout at Minnesota Highway 83 and County State Aid Highway 90. The design of this highway expansion will consider a potential four‐lane expansion. In the future, this route may serve as a southern bypass for the Mankato region.

Those with questions about this presentation may contact W. James Wilde, a licensed professional engineer and professor in Minnesota State Mankato’s Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering, by phone at 507‐389‐5252 or by email at j.wilde@mnsu.edu.

Minnesota State Mankato’s Department of Mechanical and Civil Engineering is part of the University’s College of Science, Engineering and Technology.

Minnesota State Mankato, a comprehensive university with 15,193 students, is part of the Minnesota State Colleges & Universities system, which comprises 31 state institutions.
