The Minnesota Department of Transportation hosted an open house in Winona Tuesday on the Highway 14-61 and Gilmore Avenue intersection study.
The study was undertaken several years ago to see what can be done to alleviate one of Winona's busiest and most dangerous intersections.
Project Manager, Jeff Bunch, told the crowd of about 20 people that the Orrin Street intersection with Highway 61 is the most dangerous according to the study.
There are three options being considered but all of them stop traffic from crossing Highway 61 from Orrin Street in both directions.
The estimated costs for the options range from 2.3 million dollars to 6.2 million for an option that would close the so called "no-name" intersection by Taco Bell that leads across the highway into HyVee's parking lot. The traffic would be funneled to the Gilmore Street lights.
Bunch says a final option will be picked by January 2015 with construction on the project set to start July 1st that year.
