RICHMOND -- A public open house is planned for Wednesday to view proposed plans to expand Highway 23 between Paynesville and Richmond.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is looking at expanding Highway 23 to four lanes along that seven mile stretch.

The open house will be from 4:00-6:00 p.m. at the St. Peter and Paul School gymnasium in Richmond. There won't be any formal presentation, but you'll be able to view the Environmental Assessment Worksheet, project layouts and meet with MnDOT staff.
