MANKATO (TEC News), August 23 – Starting Sept. 3rd, there will be lane closures on Highway 14 from Mankato past Waseca . High tension cable median guardrails and rumble strips are being added.
A total of 10 miles of median guardrail will be installed in the area of the interchanges between Highway 22 in Mankato and the Waseca/Steele County border. Each interchange will have a mile of guardrail on each side. These are to create a barrier for cars so they don’t crash into oncoming traffic. High-tension cable guardrails absorb momentum in crashes.
