Project purpose, benefits

The purpose of this project is to replace between four and ten bridges on I-35 and TH 14 near Owatonna Minnesota. The bridges on I-35 include:

  • 74804 & 74803 (over the Straight River)
  • 74823 & 74824 (over Turtle Creek)
  • 74807 & 74808 (over UP Railroad)

The TH 14 bridges (located just east of I-35) include:

  • 74001 & 74002 (over UP Railroad)
  • 74003 & 74004 (over Straight River)

This project is currently being scoped by MnDOT. The final number of bridges constructed and letting date will depend on available funding.




This project is being managed by MnDOT Central Office and will likely include full consultant design and construction oversight.
