The Minnesota Department of Transportation is hosting a virtual public meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday to discuss the proposed Virginia headquarters relocation.
The headquarters building is currently located 101 Hoover Road. The proposed relocation would be south of Eveleth near St. Mary's Lake, 7907 Thunderbird Trail East, Fayal Township.
Staff members need additional space, according to MnDOT. The current headquarters has about 15.5 acres available to build on; a new site would require 20.8 acres. The proposed site is a 33.9-acre gravel pit.
During the meeting, staff will discuss why the property has been chosen as the preferred location as well as the project's time frame. Staff will answer user-submitted questions during the meeting.
Residents who don't have internet access can call into the meeting at 855-282-6330.
