Old TH 14 (Elm Avenue) Project Open House #2

| September 17, 2015


The City of Waseca, in cooperation with the Minnesota Department of Transportation, invites you to attend the second public open house for the Old Trunk Highway 14 (also known as CSAH 14 and Elm Avenue) improvement project.  The Old TH 14 improvement project is focused on the reconstruction of the old trunk highway including the replacement of the road surface, sidewalks, and public utilities along the roadway corridor within the entire Waseca city limits.

The second public engagement meeting will take place Tuesday, September 29, 2015 from 4:30-7:00 pm at the Waseca Public Safety Building located at 303 South State Street, Waseca. 

The meeting will be an open house format and interested parties are encouraged to stop by anytime between 4:30 pm and 7:00 pm to discuss the proposed project with members of the project team.  There will not be a formal presentation and the project team is interested in hearing about any concerns or ideas residents may have regarding the project improvements along the corridor.

Open House #2 Purpose

Since Open House #1, held on June 30, 2015, the Project Team has been busy gathering information and developing a two-dimensional or plan view layout called the geometric layout of the entire 3.5 mile corridor.  This plan is intended to identify the proposed lane configurations including turn lanes, trails, bike lanes, etc. as well as sidewalk and driveway locations and improvements.  Your input is important to this process. The Project Team is looking for feedback regarding the draft geometric layout so that the layout can be finalized and approved by the necessary regulatory agencies prior to moving into more detailed final design and the completion of cost estimates and construction documents.

If you are unable to attend the open house or would like to speak with a project representative privately, please contact Mark DuChene, Waseca City Engineer, with any questions at  507-835-9716 or markd@ci.waseca.mn.us


Project updates and copies of presentation materials can also be found on the project website located at http://ci.waseca.mn.us/old-trunk-hwy-14elm-avenue-updates/ Project team members are also holding open office hours on most Wednesday’s from 10 am to 2 pm.  Appointments are not necessary but encouraged to ensure representatives of the project team are available to discuss any comments or concerns you may have regarding the project.


We look forward to talking with you at the open house!
