CSAH 39/42 Construction Project Update

Work on County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 39 & 42 in Otsego, between Odean Avenue and CSAH 42, is scheduled to begin the last week in April 2020.  The prime contractor on this project is Park Construction Company, Minneapolis MN.  During construction, the project will be closed to thru traffic, which will be directed to use a posted detour route (see page 2 for more information on detour routes and access to local businesses).  

This project is scheduled to be constructed in two stages: Stage 1 in 2020 from Page Avenue to CSAH 42 (Parrish Avenue) - to be completed in fall of 2020. Stage 2 in 2021 from Odean Avenue to Page Avenue - to be completed in fall of 2021. Proposed improvements include transforming the corridor from a rural two-lane section to a divided four-lane urban section. Roundabouts will be constructed @ Odean Avenue, Page Avenue and CSAH 42 (Parrish Avenue).

Many privately-owned utility changes will be taking place throughout the project. This work will be performed by the individual private utility companies or crews they hire directly at the same time as the County project. Some of this work may begin before the road closure.  

There will be a public outreach weekly meeting opportunity for residents/business owners to ask questions and stay informed of work progress.  The meeting will take place on Wednesdays, at 9:30 am the at Prairie Center Community Center, 8899 Nashua Ave, Otsego.  We will limit attendees in accordance with social distancing protocols. If you cannot attend, email Chad Hausmann, Assistant County Engineer at: with your questions or concerns.  

The Wright County Highway Department greatly appreciates your patience during construction on this important improvement project. Questions or comments regarding this project can be directed to the Wright County Highway Department @ 763-682-7383.  Business hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
