50th STREET NE/CSAH 18 ROAD CLOSURE
Highway 18 Project – Construction Update
May 31, 2018 – CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: The proposed improvements to County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 18, from the intersection of MacIver Avenue NE/Barthel Industrial Drive NE to CSAH 22 (Naber Avenue NE) are scheduled to begin the week of June 4, 2018.
VEIT & Company of Rogers, MN is the prime contractor that will be leading the construction, along with several sub-contractors that they will be overseeing/supervising. Several private utility companies (M&P Nexlevel, Centerpoint, Centurylink, Charter, and Xcel Energy) will also be performing relocation work of their private utilities within the highway corridor in conjunction with the highway construction.
Although the highway will be detoured during construction, with a posted detour route, residents that live along the construction zone will have access to their homes. The construction is scheduled to continue into the Fall of 2018, when traffic will be opened to the public, with completion of the work coming in 2019.
WSB & Associates will be performing the inspection/construction management services for the work. If you have construction related concerns during the project, please contact one of the following people:
