SPRING VALLEY, Minn. – The public is invited to attend an open house Tuesday, Nov. 18 in Spring Valley to learn about the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s 2015 project on Highway 63 from the Iowa border to Spring Valley.

The meeting is scheduled from 4:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. at the Spring Valley Ambulance Association, 201 S. Broadway. Directions to the center are: Follow Highway 16 east of Spring Valley. The site is about a quarter mile east of the BP Amoco station. Turn into the driveway between the substation and the shed. The ambulance station can be seen on the hill to the left.
