MnDOT collecting drainage information for Hwy 14 plans from North Mankato to Nicollet

Open House set for November 26 in Mankato

MANKATO, Minn. – Landowners along Hwy 14 from North Mankato to Nicollet are encouraged to bring their tile maps to an open house at the Minnesota Department of Transportation, 2151 Bassett Drive, Mankato on Tuesday, Nov. 26 anytime between 9 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.

Engineers at the Minnesota Department of Transportation are working on the plans for the Hwy 14 four-lane expansion from North Mankato to Nicollet.  To ensure that construction goes as smooth as possible, they are trying to collect tile locations so that existing drainage is preserved and future drainage problems are minimized.  MnDOT engineers are also looking for input on the placement of storm water ponds as they are required to incorporate them into the plans as per the Clean Water Act.

Individuals unable to attend the open house can contact Chuck Slama at 507-304-6153.  To learn more about the Hwy 14 project visit www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/14newulmtonmankato/ .
