The City of Red Wing in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has initiated the Highway 61 (Main Street) Project focused on developing a plan for the reconstruction of State Highway 61 between Old West Main Street and Potter Street in downtown Red Wing. MnDOT awarded the City Municipal Agreement funding to repair the roadway surface of this section of Highway 61 in 2015/2016. The City then obtained additional funding through MnDOT’s Corridor Investment Management Strategies program to expand the scope of the pavement reconstruction project to also include improvements to safety, streetscape, pedestrian movements and utilities.
