Short-term eastbound Highway 14 ramp closures at Kasson scheduled July 1

KASSON, Minn. – Motorists at Highway 14 eastbound and Highway 57 in Kasson will encounter short-term ramp closures on July 1 when crews pave the ramps, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The Highway 14 eastbound on-ramp from Highway 57 and the Highway 14 eastbound off-ramp to Highway 57 are scheduled to be temporarily closed on July 1, weather permitting. Crews will work as quickly as possible and the ramps will fully open as soon as the work is completed. Work is expected to be completed during the day. Drivers should use alternate routes during this time.

This work is part of the Highway 14 project that is making the following improvements.
