Construction on Hwy 210 and Hwy 73 in Cromwell is underway. Through traffic on Hwy 210 is reduced to a single lane controlled by a signal on in town. There will be no access to or from Hwy 73 at the intersection with Hwy 210. Motorists must use the posted detour.
Summary of work
The project will reconstruct the existing highway and includes the following:
Twelve-foot driving lanes and 10-foot parking lanes will be maintained on Hwy 210 from Hwy 73 to Burnett Road.
New storm sewer and curb and gutter to collect and convey stormwater runoff.
New sidewalk along Hwy 210 and along the west side of Hwy 73 adjacent to the Cromwell High School.
New lighting along Hwy 210.
Possible temporary easements and permanent right-of-way on Hwy 210 south of the Hwy 73 intersection is anticipated.
MnDOT and the contractor will be holding weekly update meetings on Thursdays at 11 a.m. at the construction job trailer located at Carlton County’s salt shed at 1372 Highway 73 in Cromwell.
