  • Reconstruction of Highway 114 from the Highway 55 intersection to County Road 28 in Lowry
  • Resurfacing of Highway 114 from County Road 28 to Highway 28 in Starbuck
  • Storm sewer replacement in Lowry and culvert replacements
  • Tree removals in Lowry due to powerline and sidewalk conflicts and age/decay
  • Sidewalk and pedestrian accessibility improvements

For those who cannot attend the in-person event or would prefer to get information virtually, information shared at the open house will be available on the project website mndot.gov/d4/projects/lowry. Comments and questions can be submitted via a form on the project website or contact MnDOT.
