Work continues on Hwy. 14 Repaving Project in Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News)- Work is continuing on a repaving project on Hwy. 14 through southeast Rochester.
“They’ve got that first layer of pavement down and some temporary striping but you still see single lanes,” MnDOT Southeast District Spokesman Mike Dougherty said during an interview on KROC-AM’s Rochester Today. “Probably towards the end of the month they should wrap up there.”
Paving work is set to continue this week between Marion Rd. Southeast and Olmsted County Rd. 19 in Chester. MnDOT advises motorists to plan for significant delays and to use alternative routes to avoid the paving area.
Crews started resurfacing the five-mile stretch of Hwy. 14 through southeast Rochester on September 19. MnDOT officials say 24,000 drivers use the highway daily.
