Blue Earth County Public Works is hosting an open house on Tuesday, August 24, 2021 from 4:00-6:00 PM at the Mankato Regional Airport (3030 North Airport Road, Mankato) to discuss road design and environmental review process for reconstructing County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 12 from CSAH 2 to CSAH 26 East.  Blue Earth County and Bolton & Menk staff will be on hand to discuss the project and answer questions.

The project will improve safety by improving the road surface, widening shoulders, and flattening ditch slopes. The project will provide a smooth 10 ton per axle route to better serve farm to market and residential traffic. Drainage will be improved by reshaping ditches and replacing deteriorated drainage pipes and tiles.  Final design and acquisition of right of way is planned for this fall and winter with utility relocations and reconstructing occurring in 2022.
