The start date for construction on Highway 22 from Beauford to Blue Earth County Road 15 has been pushed back because of the weather.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation had originally scheduled it to begin on Monday, but with winter hanging on they’ve said they won’t start work now until April 30th.

It’s an extension of the project that was completed between Mapleton and Beauford last year.

When work gets underway traffic will be detoured east on County Road 10 and north on County Road 83.

Businesses in the impacted area will remain open and accessible.
