Construction on County Road 18 near Meriden complete July 16
ROCHESTER, Minn. — County Road 18 south of Meriden will open to traffic beginning Friday, July 16, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
County Road 18 was closed while crews constructed a new bridge as part of the three-year reconstruction of Highway 14 from Waseca to Owatonna which also includes construction of a new interchange at I-35 and Highway 14.
When the project is complete, motorists will experience a smoother ride surface and a safer highway.
Mathiowetz Construction Co., Sleepy Eye, Minn., is the prime contractor for the $51.8 million project. The entire project is expected to be completed by June 2012.
MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
