Public invited to Hwy 5 construction information meeting March 19
2013 Hwy 5 projects cover Gaylord, Arlington and Green Isle
MANKATO, Minn. – The public is encouraged to stop by an informational meeting on Hwy 5 projects scheduled for construction this summer. The Tuesday, March 19 open house will be held from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Arlington Community Center, 204 Shamrock Drive.
Staff from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and assisting consultants will be able to address impacts of the two following projects:
- Hwy 5 - Arlington to Green Isle
Replace pavement and culvert work
July to early September
Detour traffic in two stages to County Roads (map attached)
- Hwy 5 - Gaylord to Arlington
Resurfacing (mill and overlay), reconstruct sidewalk ramps in Arlington
May to June
Lane closures and delays; short detour for bridge repair work
Each project has a cost around $3 million and will provide the motorists with a smoother, safer ride.
Prior to the Gaylord to Arlington resurfacing project, the traffic signal at Hwy 5 and Main Street in Arlington will be deactivated for a three-month evaluation period. In place of the signal, through-stop control (where Hwy 5 traffic does not stop, but Main Street traffic does) will be implemented and evaluated. If no adverse traffic impacts are observed during the evaluation period, the signal will be removed as part of the resurfacing project. An earlier engineering study determined the existing traffic signal is not needed now or in the future.
