2021 North Cedar Ave Streetscape Project
- The City of Owatonna Downtown Streetscape Study was approved by the Owatonna City Council in November of 2019 as part of a larger Master Planning effort. ISG has been engaged to assist with this project, considered as Phase One of the Master plan, which consists of North Cedar Avenue Streetscape improvements focused on the three blocks between Central Park and Rose Street. The project includes a site assessment of existing conditions, summary of stakeholders and community engagement, and the general planning framework for the downtown area.
- Traffic patterns for N Cedar Avenue were changed Monday, April 11, 2022. N. Cedar Avenue from Vine Street to just north of Broadway Street on the 100 block will be closed to both directions of traffic, including the intersection of Vine Street & Cedar Avenue. Traffic will be routed around the work area via. CSAH 45/Oak Avenue, E. Main Street, and N. Elm Avenue. Pedestrian access is to be maintained to all businesses along N. Cedar Avenue throughout the project.
- Construction is anticipated to continue into summer with traffic control changes occurring as work progresses. The roadway from Vine Street to Broadway and alleys on the west side of N. Cedar Avenue are planned to be finalized this year.
- All dates are subject to change due to weather or other factors. The City of Owatonna advises motorists to drive with caution and slow down through work zones for their safety and for the safety of the construction crews.
