Welcome to the US 14 Corridor Analysis website!
Olmsted County and its partners at MnDOT, the cities of Byron and Kasson, and Dodge County have been analyzing the US 14 corridor. Based upon technical analysis and input from the community, the group formed consensus on the future long-range vision and selected alternative B1, which is shown below. This long-range vision will transform the corridor into a freeway with interchanges at Dodge County Road 15, Olmsted County Road 5, Olmsted County Road 3, and Olmsted County Road 104 (Olmsted 44) in the future.
B1: Selected Long-Term Corridor Access Alternative
Up next, the US 14 Corridor Analysis project team is refining design concepts and outlining potential implementation plans for short-term, mid-term, and long-term improvements along the corridor limits.
Later this year, the project team will host our third open house in the process. The next open house will be held virtual to share more information about:
- Selected access alternative
- Implementation plans
- Official mapping
- Potential local roadway improvements
You can review materials presented at the second open house on the project website’s public involvement tab. More information will be shared when a virtual meeting date is selected.
About the Project
The primary goal of the US 14 Corridor Analysis project is to create a future vision for the corridor that improves safety, manages access, improves freight movement, manages congestion into the future, and encourages economic development. A key focus in accomplishing this goal statement is determining access management options for key intersections along the corridor.
Those key intersections include:
- 260th Avenue
- Dodge County 15 (270th Avenue)
- 280th Avenue/19th Avenue (County line)
- Olmsted County 5 (2nd Avenue)
- 10th Avenue
- Olmsted County 3
- Olmsted County 104 (60th Avenue)
The project partners for this effort include:
- Olmsted County
- Minnesota Department of Transportation
- City of Byron
- Dodge County
- City of Kasson
The project includes a public involvement process whereby the area residents and business owners will have an opportunity to share your thoughts and opinions. The project partners hope to engage with the public regarding the corridor analysis outcomes and future vision.
