GARRISON — The Minnesota Department of Transportation and the city of Garrison invite the community to attend a public meeting to learn about plans to improve Highway 169 through Garrison on Wednesday, Nov. 30.

The meeting will be from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30, at the Garrison Community Center, 27174 Central St. in Garrison. A short presentation is planned at 5:30 p.m., followed by an open house. Guests will have the opportunity to visit with project staff, ask questions and view improvement options, including a roundabout concept at Highway 18 and Highway 169.

MnDOT will improve 5 miles of Highway 169 from south of Garrison at Crow Wing County Road 26 to north of Garrison at Pike Avenue in 2025. Work is anticipated to include new storm sewer, sidewalk and improvements to the busy intersection of Highway 18 and 169 in Garrison.

For more information, visit the project webpage at Highway 169—Garrison or contact Eric Schiller, project development manager, at or 218-821-6552.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. Those who need an ASL, foreign language interpreter or other reasonable accommodation, or need documents in an alternative format (such as braille or large print), are asked to email their request to Janet Miller at or call 651-366-4720.


Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
