Blue Earth County Public Works reminds drivers that County Road 27 from US Highway 14 to County Road 2 remains closed at this time and is still actively under construction. 


Drivers should avoid using the road unless they live along this segment.  In recent days there have been numerous safety concern issues between construction crews and vehicles speeding through the project.  Blue Earth County takes the safety of motorists, construction workers, and County employees seriously and we are asking for the publics assistance with that.  Patience and caution are needed as construction crews complete the final grading, sign installations, seeding and pavement markings over the next few weeks.  A future media release will be sent when the road re-opens to traffic.
