Highway 22 Work Gets Underway 12 May 14

Motorists travelling on Highway 22 in Mankato can expect to see lane restrictions and speed reductions starting today (MON). The first phase of the project includes the reconstruction of Highway 22 and the building of new roundabouts at Adams Street and Madison Avenue. It gets underway with a groundbreaking ceremony at 11am today at Snell Motors, followed by a public open house at Snell until 1pm. Highway 22 lane restrictions from Hoffman Road to Victory Drive will remain in place until the Highway 22 closure expected on June 2nd.  Weather and the completion of Blue Earth County Road 17 may affect the stages of construction and detours. Mathiowetz Construction of Sleepy Eye is the primary contractor on the more-than $7-million project.
