On Tuesday, Aug. 24, the Marshall City Council approved the recommended layout for the Highway 19/College Drive reconstruction project. The project will now enter the design phase where the layout is refined, and construction plans are created. The design phase and right-of-way process take approximately two years.
Construction on the Highway 19/College Drive reconstruction project is planned to begin in the spring of 2025 and is expected to take two construction seasons (2025 and 2026) to finish. Improvements will be made from 4th Street to Bruce Street. The pavement has deteriorated, and the city of Marshall needs to replace aging utilities. Sidewalk improvements will be made along the project area in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
MnDOT District 8 and the city of Marshall began working with the community of Marshall in October 2019 to develop a vision and priorities for the 2025 Highway 19/College Drive reconstruction project. MnDOT has also been working with property owners on potential changes to their access along Highway 19/College Drive.
