County Road 1 (Old Highway 66) between 193rd Street / Hickory Lane and 195th Lane will be closed for roadway surcharge construction beginning Monday, May 13. Drivers should expect this portion of the road to be closed for approximately two months and are encouraged to find alternate routes. Thru-traffic on County Road 1 will be detoured via County Road 35, County Road 16, and County Road 90.
Work during this closure includes placement of temporary soil surcharge over the existing and proposed roadway alignments to compress soft underlying soils, and temporary aggregate roadway placement over the surcharge.
Residents and landowners are encouraged to contact the Blue Earth County Public Works Department to coordinate access concerns with the county and the contractor, Mathiowetz Construction. For more information on the County Road 1 project, contact the Blue Earth County Highway Department at (507) 304-4025.
