About this project

I-494 Ramp Closures
Hwy 22/Hwy 109 Wells project limits

Hwy 22 in Wells from the northern intersection with Hwy 109 to just south of 12th St. SW, as well as Hwy 109 from west of Rose Hill Cemetery to Hwy 22, will be reconstructed to improve the pavement, utilities, and bicycle/pedestrian accommodations.

With input from the City of Wells, local residents, and other project stakeholders, MnDOT evaluated the corridor, developed design concepts, and arrived at a preliminary layout for construction in 2026 and 2027.

Hwy 22/Hwy 109 design layout: December 2023

Summary of work

In addition to replacing the pavement and utilities, this project will bring new design features along the roadway. Slightly narrowed lanes, intersection changes, and the addition of curb extensions, bike lanes, boulevards, and ADA compliant sidewalks will improve safety for motorists, bicyclists, and pedestrians.
