Single-lane closure scheduled for Broadway Street in New Ulm July 13 and July 16

MANKATO, Minn. — Motorists traveling southbound on Broadway Street near the intersection of 7th Street in New Ulm will encounter a single-lane closure the morning of Friday, July 13, and all day Monday, July 16, weather permitting.

The single-lane closure is needed while crews conduct milling and paving operations on the southbound lanes of Broadway Street.

MnDOT urges motorists to drive with caution, slow down in work zones and be aware of flagging operations in the area.

This work is part of the Hwy 14/15 New Ulm Gateway project, which is in the second year of construction. The project addresses intersection safety, aging bridges, poor pavement conditions and occasional road flooding around New Ulm. Construction began in 2017, with the majority of the work and detours taking place in 2018 and 2019.
