MnDOT conducted a study of the Hwy 14/Highland Ave. intersection in New Ulm to analyze safety and traffic flow issues. With input from the City of New Ulm, local residents and businesses, the school district, and other project stakeholders, MnDOT arrived at a single lane roundabout design.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will be reconstructing Hwy 14 from New Ulm to Nicollet between 2022-2023 to improve safety and travel for this important freight and trade corridor. Overall, the project is expanding 12.5 miles of Hwy 14 from two lanes to four lanes between New Ulm and Nicollet to complete a continuous four-lane road between New Ulm and Rochester.
Engineering staff has created a GIS Construction Project site to provide descriptions and maps of ongoing construction projects for the current year. The GIS site will keep you updated from start to completion.
