Westbound Highway 14 ramp closures at Kasson Tues. morning

(ABC 6 News) – A heads up for drivers on Highway 14, as several ramps near Kasson will be closed Tues. morning as part of a construction project.

According to the Minn. Dept. of Transportation, drivers at Highway 14 westbound and Highway 57 will see intermittent ramp closures from 6 a.m. to noon while crews pave the ramps.

Drivers will be directed by flaggers, so MnDOT officials say short traffic delays are possible.

The work is a part of a greater Highway 14 project that is making the following improvements:

  • Construct a J-turn at Highway 14 and Dodge County Road 9
  • Install a high-tension cable median barrier between Dodge Center and Kasson
  • Resurface pavement between Kasson and Byron
  • Improve and repair drainage
  • Rehabilitate the eastbound and westbound Highway 14 bridges over Highway 57. The work includes new end posts, approach panels and expansion joints
  • Upgrade the Road Weather Information System (RWIS) site near Byron with new pavement sensors and processing unit
