Highway 14 safety improvements slated
MANKATO, Minn. - An on-going safety evaluation of Highway 14 west of Mankato has prompted the local Mn/DOT office to begin several safety improvements.
As early as this fall, motorists can expect to see:
- A flashing sign for westbound motorists that indicate a two-lane (two-way) road is ahead
- Two signs for eastbound traffic that indicate a freeway ahead
- Centerline rumble stripes
According, to Jim Swanson, Mankato district engineer, Mn/DOT is continuing to review other safety enhancements like radar speed displays and lighting at four paved county highway intersections.
"The improvements are in response to Highway 14 safety concerns expressed by area legislators, officials and motorists," said Swanson.
Other safety evaluations are being completed in Minnesota in areas where highways drop from four to two lanes. Safety enhancements are currently underway on Highway 60 between Windom and St. James.
