Weather permitting, Highway 14 motorists will encounter crews trimming and removing trees along Highway 14 from New Ulm to Nicollet starting Monday, March 7, as they prepare for the 2022-2023 Highway 14 four-lane expansion project.

The tree removal will have little to no impact on travel. However, motorists are advised to watch for workers and equipment on the shoulders.  The tree removal sites are located throughout the project. The work needs to be done early in the year to prevent protected bats from making their homes in the trees.

Full construction on the Hwy 14 New Ulm to Nicollet expansion project is expected to begin in early April 2022, weather permitting, and will require traffic to be detoured.
