Highway 14, 15 interchange partially opens near New Ulm

NEW ULM, Minn. (KEYC) — Some relief is here for drivers near New Ulm this evening.

The Highway 14, 15 interchange is partially now open.

MnDOT says the west leg into the city that runs over the Minnesota River will remain under construction.

Highway 14 and 15 travelers heading west into New Ulm will be detoured to the 20th Street Bridge.

“The traveling public will have access from both ramps coming down into and underneath that bridge I was talking about as well as up off Highway 14 back onto Highway 15 heading towards Klossner,” Project Supervisor Todd Kjolstad said.

As far as the other part of the Gateway project: construction on the Minnesota River Bridge has resumed after lengthy weather delays.

The original completion of the project was intended to be June 2020; an updated date has not yet been announced.
