Highway Construction Plan:  Five Year Transportation Improvement Plan

The following is a brief summary of the anticipated major Road Projects for the 2021 construction season.

CSAH 6 From  730 Ave to Wright County

This section of roadway was fully reconstructed in 2020 and will be paved in the first half of 2021.  The improved alignment and widening of the roadway will make this road a safer route for the public to travel on.


CSAH 6 From 725th Ave to 730th Ave

This project includes pavement widening and a new pavement surface overlay.  Currently, this road has narrow, 12' paved lanes and the widening portion of the project will widen the pavement on each side of centerline to 14'.  This widening will reduce ongoing maintenance of the gravel shoulder as well as protect the pavement edge and improve safety for drivers.  Along with widening, the road will receive a thin overlay to improve the ride quality of the road.  The project is currently in design phase and expected to be constructed in the summer of 2021.


CSAH 1 From Trunk Highway 7 to Litchfield
