Highway 22 Construction Between Mapleton and Wells to Begin April 17th

Motorists traveling on Highway 22 between Mapleton and Wells can expect a detour beginning on Monday, April 17th, weather permitting, as crew resurface the highway, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The project will include resurfacing Highway 22 from approximately a quarter of a mile south of Mapleton to the intersection with Highway 109/Faribault County Road 29 in Wells.  The project will go through Minnesota Lake, where Americans with Disability Improvements will be made by adding new curb ramps, updating existing sidewalks and adding a short segment of sidewalk.

Highway 22 from Mapleton to Wells will be closed during construction and traffic detoured.  Highway 22 traffic will be detoured to Highway 109, Faribault County Road 17, Blue Earth County Roads 47 and 7 and Highway 30.  Highway 30 traffic will be detoured to Blue Earth County Roads 29 and 7.  Visit the project website for additional detour information.

Construction is expected to be complete by late July, weather permitting.
