Public information meeting set Sept. 20 for Hwy 14 project from Dodge Center to Byron

DODGE CENTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites the public to attend a public information meeting on Tuesday, Sept. 20 to learn more about a project to improve safety for all users on Highway 14 from Dodge Center to Byron.

Meeting information

  • Time: 6-8 p.m.
  • Date: Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2022
  • Place: American Legion, 401 Hwy St. W, Dodge Center
  • Information: The meeting will be open house style. People are encouraged to stop by any time and review the information, discuss issues with the MnDOT project team and then depart when it suits their schedule.

Virtual option

People unable to attend the meeting will be able to review the information and provide comments at talk.dot.state.mn.us/hwy-14-co-rd-9-rci.

Background

MnDOT is planning construction on Highway 14 from Dodge Center to Byron in 2024. The project aims to improve safety for all users by:

  • Constructing a Reduced Conflict Intersection (RCI) at Dodge County Road 9
  • Installing a high-tension cable median barrier
  • Resurfacing pavement

The Highway 14 and County Road 9 intersection has a high risk for severe crashes. The multi-lane crossing, and high traffic speeds contribute to the risk. Building a RCI will help reduce the risk of life-altering crashes.

Stay connected, informed

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all people in their programs, services and activities.
