Road Closures Begin October 19 in Owatonna
Ten culverts are scheduled to be replaced on County Road 45 south of Owatonna beginning Monday, October 19. The work will be done between County Road 4 and County Road 18. The highway will be closed to all through-traffic beginning Monday and lasting until October 31. This timetable is based upon the weather.
Work will proceed from south to north and be staged using three segment closures/detours. Property owners will be able to access their property within the closed segments. The direction of access, whether from the north or from the south, will change depending upon which culvert is being replaced.
There will be a second area of work starting Thursday, October 22. Pavement maintenance will be done at the intersection of Hoffman Drive and North Street. On Thursday the old layer of blacktop will be removed and then replaced with a new layer on Friday, October 23. The intersection will be closed to all traffic these two days.
