An online open house is planned for 5:30 p.m. Dec . 3 to share the selected long-term vision for the U.S. Highway 14 corridor from from Highway 57 (Mantorville Avenue) to Olmsted County Road 104 (60th Avenue).

Olmsted County and its partners at the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the cities of Byron and Kasson, and Dodge County are developing a long-term vision and implementation plan for the section of Highway 14 that connects Kasson, Byron and Rochester.

An in-person event was originally planned to share the long-term vision, but public agencies have indefinitely postponed public meetings and events to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Attendees of the online open house will have the opportunity to hear from and talk with the project team, review the selected long-term vision for the corridor, learn about potential implementation plans and next steps, as well as share feedback on information presented during the meeting. All meeting materials, including a recording of the presentation, will be available on the project website after the meeting.
