CSAH 1 (Cedar Ave) and CSAH 34 (26th Street) Intersection - City of Owatonna
Description: The intersection with a four-way stop has experienced operational issues due to increased traffic in the area. Steele County and the City of Owatonna are constructing a mini-roundabout, a lower cost option that is able to manage traffic more efficiently and provide better safety than a traffic signal.
The mini-roundabout is scheduled to be constructed beginning June 10 2019. The project is schedule to be complete August 16.
Construction Dates: June 10 - August 16, 2019
More Information: A public information meeting was held January 17, 2019.
