Road construction discussed at New Ulm Hot Topics meeting 19 Mar 18

As the snow melts, talk turned to road construction Friday at a Hot Topics meeting sponsored by the New Ulm Area Chamber of Commerce. Minnesota Department of Transportation Supervisor Todd Kjolstad says road construction in the New Ulm Area will resume again soon. The first phase of the project will be to replace the Front Street Bridge which is expected to be completed by October of this year. The Minnesota River Bridge replacement project could begin this year, but is not expected to be completed until 2019. The Y-Intersection interchange is the final phase of the project with replacement beginning in 2019.
