County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 38 Construction Project Update
Work on County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 38 in Otsego, from Odean Avenue to TH 101, is scheduled to begin the first part of September 2018. The prime contractor on this project is Fehn Companies, Albertville MN. During construction, CSAH 38 will be closed to thru traffic, which will be directed to use a posted detour route. A map of the Detour Route can be found by clicking on the link below.
Construction operations during the 2018 season will include the construction of a roundabout @ Odean Avenue NE and reconstruction of the roadbed for approximately 1,000 feet east of Odean Avenue (the existing pavement east of this year’s work will remain in place). This area will be paved and the entire project opened to all traffic – scheduled completion this year is by the end of October, weather permitting. The remainder of the project will be constructed in 2019 with a September 2019 completion date. Part of the work next year will include the installation of a traffic signal at Quaday Avenue NE.
Many privately-owned utility changes will be taking place throughout the project. Buried cables along with overhead lines must be relocated within the new highway right-of-way limits. This work will be performed by the individual private utility companies or crews they hire directly.
