Highway 57 project work delayed 1 week

Highway 57 projects in Kasson are rescheduled to start April 24 due to spring weight load restrictions, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The project was originally scheduled to start on this past Monday on April 17.

Spring weight load restrictions limit the amount of weight trucks can carry on certain roads during springtime when the ground is thawing and the roads could be damaged by heavier loads. Once conditions improve, the load limits are removed.

The final year of the two-year construction project is now scheduled to begin April 24 and end in July, weather permitting. It includes all reconstruction work from south of Veterans Memorial Highway/Dodge County Road 34 to just north of 1st Street NE, including the roundabout at County Road 34 and the mini roundabout at Main Street.

The work in 2022 included all reconstruction work from just north of 1st Street NE to north of 11th Street NE.

This summer’s work also includes a local partnership with the city of Kasson. This project includes a roundabout at Highway 57 and 16th Street, watermain, sanitary sewer and storm sewer improvements, improved accessibility for pedestrians, and construction of a trail connection.
