The County Board is working with legislators to discuss funding options for the County Road 104/TH 14 intersection because of the on-going safety issues and concerns.

The Olmsted County Public Works Team put the following YouTube videos together (the first is a 2-minute compilation and the second is a 9-minute compilation, both made from several increments of time taken during the morning peak of 7-7:30 AM) to show firsthand some of the dangers and traffic flow of the current design... of the intersection.


The following documents consist of various elements including test, table, graphs, etc. If you need assistance interpreting them or would like to request this document in an alternate format, please contact Olmsted County Public Works at 507 328-7060.
