Olmsted Co. to hold open house for road construction project south of Byron

(ABC 6 News) – Olmsted County will be holding an open house to detail a road reconstruction project south of Byron.

The open house will be on Wednesday, Feb. 22 from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Byron Fire Department.

The Olmsted County Public Works Department is developing plans for the reconstruction of County Road 5 and County Road 25.

The project will include pavement removal, grading, drainage improvements, and concrete surfacing. The roadway improvements, including widening the existing shoulders and ditches, are being proposed to improve safety and drainage. Additional right of way along the length of the project will need to be acquired.

There will be a short presentation at 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. describing the project need and design, with an opportunity to review layout and anticipated schedule, talk with county staff about the project, and provide comment.

The construction project is scheduled to begin during the summer of 2024.
