Highway 14 Mankato to Eagle Lake Access Study Information Meeting Set


The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) and its partners, Blue Earth County, the City of Eagle Lake and the City of Mankato will hold a public open house regarding long-term access plans on Highway 14 between Highway 22 in the City of Mankato and County Highway 27 in the City of Eagle Lake.

With the future growth in the area and the traffic volumes increasing on Highway 14, officials are considering plans for Highway 14 to be a freeway (no at-grade access points) in the future. Concepts of interchanges will be shared at the meeting.

The open house is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 9, from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Mankato National Guard Training & Community Center, 100 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Mankato.

The meeting will follow an informal, open house format. Project staff from the study partners and the consultant team will be on available to provide information and answer questions about potential improvements.

Information about the project is available by contacting Lisa Bigham from Mn/DOT at (507) 389-6888.
Anyone with special needs for the meeting should also contact Lisa Bigham.

Traveler information, including incident reports, is available by calling 511 or logging on to Know the Road. Dialup or log on.

Work Zones. Pay Attention or Pay the Price.
