MANKATO – 6/25/15
Rebekah Zens | News Director
MnDOT announced that construction for Hwy. 14 between North Mankato and Nicollet kicks off July 6. The project will include six and a half miles of two additional lanes north of existing Hwy. 14 and a two and a half mile four-lane southern bypass of Nicollet with an interchange for Hwy. 111 and County Road 23. Extra details about the project from MnDOT include the following:
July 6, 2015 – summer 2016
County Road 23 one-half mile south of Nicollet is the site of the new interchange for an extended Highway 111 and the new Highway 14 bypass. A detour of County Road 23 to Nicollet County Road 25 will be necessary from July 6 until late summer 2016 as the contractors build a bridge and grade new alignment.
August 10 – September 2015
Highway 14 from the city of Nicollet to Nicollet County Road 13 in North Mankato will be detoured to Highway 99 and Nicollet County Road 13 beginning August 10 for about two months for crews to replace a culvert under existing Highway 14.
Late summer – fall 2016
In 2016 Highway 14 will be detoured to County Road 25 and Highway 111 traffic accessing Highway 14 will use Highway 99 and Nicollet County Road 17. This two month detour is needed to build the connections from existing Highway 14 to the new alignment of the southern bypass of Nicollet.
