Highway 43 Crossing Project
The Minnesota Department of Transportation hosted a public meeting in Winona Wednesday to showcase a project to improve the pedestrian crossings on Highway 43 in the city of Winona.
Mn-DOT Project Manager Adam Pohlman says the work will make the Highway 43 pedestrian crossings in the city fully compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Pohlman says the project, which should last a few weeks, will not disrupt vehicle traffic but pedestrians along the construction route may have to be re-routed for a couple of days.
The work along Highway 43 in Winona will include Main Street, Fourth Street, Winona Street, Mankato Avenue and Sarnia.
Some of the work that wil be done starting in late August or early September includes installing new stormwater grates and sidewalk and removal of curb and gutter, sidewalk, and pavement.
MnDOT will also install Accessible Pedestrian Signals at signalized intersections without APS.
