Second Open House for 2018 Highway 22/County Road 90 roundabout construction set for Oct. 26

MANKATO, Minn. — The public is encouraged to attend a second open house on the construction of a roundabout at Highway 22/Blue Earth Co Rd 90 on Thursday, October 26 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the Minnesota Department of Transportation, 2151 Bassett Drive, Mankato.

MnDOT and Blue Earth County staff will be present to share information and discuss the construction impacts, timing of road closures, detour, and local access routes during the 2018 construction. The project also includes resurfacing from Blue Earth Co Rd 15 to County Road 90, the addition of left turn lanes into residential areas just north and south of Co Rd 90 and a structural snow fence in the northwest corner of the Co Rd 90 intersection. Plans, meeting information and a detour map are available at www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/hwy22mapleton/ .

Attendees will also be able to ask questions about the 2017-18 Highway 22 construction from Mapleton to County Road 15 and the Victory Drive Memorial landscaping to follow in 2018-19. In addition, MnDOT is working on a long-range Highway 22 traffic study and will be gathering traffic issues/opportunities that cannot be addressed with the 2018 project.

MnDOT Project Manager Robert Jones can be contacted for questions about the Hwy 22 projects at 507-304-6198 or robert.jones@state.mn.us .
