City of Owatonna & Steele County Joint Construction Projects:

  • Signal Maintenance & Upgrades: 11 Signal Systems will have maintenance/upgrades. Traffic impacts will include occasional lane closures. 
  • Bixby Road/18th Street Roundabout: The project will construct a roundabout at the intersection, currently controlled by side street stop signs. The Owatonna school district has proposed building a new high school east of this intersection and had a School Traffic Impact Study completed to identify impacts associated with the proposed development. The study identified significant operational and safety issues associated with the increase in traffic volume expected at the intersection. The expected traffic volume increase would lead to unacceptable traffic delays with the existing infrastructure. Also, given the high speeds along CSAH 48, skewed roadway geometrics, and adjacent railroad crossing, any increase in traffic volume could pose a potential safety risk. The study recommended the best alternative to address these issues is to construct a roundabout before the proposed high school opens in Fall 2023. Watch for further details regarding traffic impacts. Visit the Steele County Website for more information or to sign up for updates.
