Stop light system delayed

Patrick Fisher, Staff Writer

The four-way stoplight system at the intersection of Highway 13/19, Scott County State Aid Highway 37 and 10th Avenue SE has been delayed.

The stoplights are the last part of the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) project along the highway on New Prague's east side. The lights were to arrive in mid-November, but are now scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 15. Currently four-way stop signs are being used at the intersection.

Susan Museus, construction project manager with MnDOT's District 7 Office out of Mankato, explained that the delay is due to work on Highway 280. Her office was informed that highway currently has first priority, so all resources are needed there. Highway 280 is the detour being used for traffic since the Interstate 35W bridge collapsed August 1.

Museus said the contractor for the project on Highway 13/19, Chard Tiling & Excavating, confirmed on Tuesday, Nov. 27, the stoplights will arrive on December 15. Plans are to install the lights as soon as they are delivered.

Other work

In other roadwork around the community, Sixth Street NW is now open to traffic. The street on New Prague's west side was closed in October so it could be aligned with Seventh Street NW near Chart Industries.
