Stage 2

Stage 2 construction is anticipated to occur from June 2020 to July 2020.  During this phase, Section 2, from S. High Street to W. Marion St., and Section 3, from W. Marion St. to Goodhue County Road 5, will be under construction. No street parking will be available in these sections during this time. Section 1 construction will be complete and traffic returned to Highway 61. 

People going to businesses or homes on or near Sections 2 or 3 will have the ability to reach their destination. Temporary pedestrian access routes, which will be ADA compliant, will be provided to affected businesses and destinations. Construction zone crossings for pedestrians and motorists will be provided during the project, but will move from place to place as work progresses.

Once construction on Section 2 is complete, access to Highway 61 from S. High Street to W. Marion St. resumes and construction shifts to Stage 3.
