Road closures

  • CSAH 43 North of TH 14 now open – no detour.  Currently OPEN as of November 18, 2014
  • S.E. 54th Ave. (township road) South of TH 14 is now open – no detour.  Currently OPEN as of November 18, 2014
    Due to unseasonable cold weather, long term head to head traffic will remain on TH 14 during the winter months in the construction zone.  The westbound traveling public will continue to use the crossover between county road 6 (Austin Rd.) and U.S. highway 218 and eastbound TH 14 traffic will continue to be reduced to single lane just west of county road 6 (Austin Rd.).
  • Westbound off ramp to U.S. Highway 218 and county road 48 will remain closed throughout the winter months. 
  • Shoulder closures
  • Lane shifts

Pedestrian/bicyclist closures

  • This is a rural stretch of road - pedestrians and bicyclists should find an alternate route
