Traffic impacts

Throughout both stages of construction, a detour will be in place for thru traffic. The detour will direct travelers around the entire work zone using Hwy 43, Hwy 16 and Cooperative Way.

Residents, business owners and visitors may access the project area using adjacent local streets; however, street parking within the project will not be allowed during construction. Vehicle traffic should plan to access properties by parking on the nearest side street or parking lot. The sidewalk on one side of the road will remain open throughout construction.

Questions about property access can be directed to Jayme LaPlante with Dunn Blacktop at 507-577-1800.
