MANKATO-November 7, 2012-(KMKO)-MnDOT has completed the safety features that alert distracted drivers on Highway 14 from Nicollet to North Mankato. The newly resurfaced and re-striped highway is dotted with over 600 yellow delineators. The centerline delineators will prohibit passing on the six mile corridor. The project included an eight-foot median with tube delineators every 50 feet that make motorists more aware of the center of the roadway. Rumble strips have also been placed on both the outside shoulder and the inside median. A road safety audit determined that head-on crashes on Highway 14 from Nicollet to North Mankato are three times the state average for a similar roadway. The next step is to expand Highway 14 to four lanes from Nicollet to North Mankato in 2017-18.
