ADA project on Hwy 14 in Tyler begins next week
WILLMAR, Minn. – An Americans with Disabilities Act improvement project gets started in Tyler next week. Sidewalks, driveways, and ramps along Hwy 14 from County Road 8 to Danebod Court will be updated to meet current ADA standards.
Drivers will encounter temporary lane closures and a flagging operation during construction, and short delays are possible. Work is expected to take two to three weeks.
The construction in Tyler is part of a districtwide project, with work being done in several locations. The project cost is $1.5 million and the contractor is Hovland, Inc., of Hermantown, Minn.
