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.
