Lake City

Stage 3

Stage 3 construction is anticipated from Aug. 2020 to Nov. 2020.  During this phase, Section 3, from W. Marion St. to Goodhue County Road 5 will be under construction. No street parking will be available in this section during this time. Section 1 and 2 construction will be complete and traffic returned to Highway 61. 

People going to businesses or homes on or near Sections 3 will have the ability to reach their destination. Temporary pedestrian access routes, which will be ADA compliant, will be provided to affected businesses and destinations. Construction zone crossings for pedestrians and motorists will be provided during the project, but will move from place to place as work progresses.

Once construction on section 3 is complete, access to Highway 61 from W. Marion St. to Goodhue County Road 5 resumes and the detour is removed.  Final cleanup work will continue.
