New 4-Way Stop

As part of MnDOT’s participation in the highway reconstruction project in Gaylord, traffic controls were reviewed. At the same time that it was determined that the intersection of 4th Street & Main did not warrant a traffic signal, it was determined that traffic counts and crash history at 6th (Hwy 22) and Main (Hwy 19) warranted additional control resulting in the new 4-way stop situation. (Hwy 22 & 19 intersection did not meet the warrant for a signal).

Motorists should use caution and drive defensively, as motorists get accustomed to the new intersection controls.

MANKATO, Minn. – The first year of a major reconstruction on Highways 5, 19 and 22 in Gaylord is wrapping up and the detours are expected to be removed late on Monday, Oct. 6, weather permitting.

Work completed this year included reconstruction of a section of Highway 19 and 22 extending from Sibley Avenue to Gaylord’s north city limits. Utilities have been updated, sidewalks are accessible to disabled and a new smoother and safer roadway is in place.

In 2015 the project centers on the business section including Highway 5 and Highway 22 to the south. In addition to utilities, sidewalks and roadway, the project includes new lighting, benches, bike racks and planters.

Work on the project includes grading, paving, installing utilities, lighting, landscaping, replacing sidewalk and improving pedestrian accessibility on Highways 5, 19 and 22 in the city of Gaylord.

Detour maps, background information and weekly updates will continue to be posted on Gaylord’s city website at exploregaylord.org/.
