County Road 17, Parkway Avenue, from TH 14 west to Eagle Lake City Hall is scheduled to open to traffic in late afternoon on Thurs., Aug. 29. Finish work remains on boulevards, driveways and final clean-up. Motorists are asked to use caution and watch for workers.
The next section of road to be reconstructed, from the Eagle Lake City Hall driveway west through the County Road 56 roundabout, is now under construction. This segment is scheduled for completion in late fall.
The County Road 17 intersection at TH 14 on the east side of Eagle Lake will be opened to traffic with the change in construction stages. As work progresses on the segment of County Road 17 from the Eagle Lake City Hall west through County Road 56 roundabout, there will be new closures on County Road 56 both north and south of County Road 17 as well as this section of County Road 17.
The public’s patience and understanding is appreciated as the project moves forward. Please contact Blue Earth County Highway Department at (507) 304-4025 with questions.
