First District Congressman Tim Walz was in Winona Tuesday getting a closer look at Winona manufacturing firm Miller Ingenuity
The tour included a demonstration of the company's newest innovation, Zone Guard. The product is currently being installed along 30 miles of light rail in Baltimore. It is designed to alert railroad workers of incoming trains, giving them enough time to get out of the way.
