Highway 14 construction begins in July
Public open house set for July 8
MANKATO, Minn. - Construction of the Highway 14 four-lane expansion around the city of Waseca is expected to begin the second week of July.
An open house has been set for Tuesday, July 8, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Waseca County Public Works Facility for the public to learn about the construction plans and have questions addressed.
The construction of a new Highway 14 south of Waseca (from Waseca County Road 2 to the Waseca/Steele County line), with interchanges at County Road 2 and Highway 13, will take about three years to complete. The Steele County portion of the expansion to Interstate 35 at Owatonna will begin in 2009.
The $56.2 million project includes grading, paving, constructing 10 bridges and doing mill and overlay work on Highway 13 from 5th Street to the railroad tracks. C.S. McCrossan Construction, Inc., is the primary contractor for the project.
The work planned for 2008 will have no traffic impacts to Highway 14 motorists and only minor impacts to local roads. As construction progresses in 2009 and 2010, detours will be needed for Highway 13 and County Road 2 traffic.
