Highway 14 construction starts in Sleepy Eye May 21 17 May 18

Construction on Main Street through Sleepy Eye is expected to begin on Monday. The project will be done under traffic with the exception of a one-week closure of Main Street East at 12th Avenue for city utility work towards the end of the project. A detour will be in place at that time. The resurfacing project will provide smoother pavement, improved shoulders, improved curb and gutter for optimal drainage, left and right turn lanes to provide a safer corridor and improved pedestrian safety. While work is being done on both the road and sidewalks, businesses on Main Street will remain open. A temporary pedestrian access to businesses will be provided during all phases of the project during construction. The project is anticipated to take three months to compelte.
