About this project

Summary of MnDOT work

map of Hwy 19/College Dr. project
  • MnDOT is planning a large roadway project (reconstruction of Highway 19/College Drive) from 4th Street to Bruce Street in the city of Marshall.
  • The pavement has deteriorated and the city of Marshall needs to replace aging utilities.
  • Sidewalk improvements will be made along the project area in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Overall project details are not yet determined. Through the project development process, overall project details will be determined. Discussions about options for intersections, streetscape and aesthetic options, drainage and other project details, will take place during the project development process.

Hwy 19 safety demonstration project

  • MnDOT is planning to test a safety demonstration project at the intersection of Hwy 19 and High Street in Marshall. This is separate from the Hwy 19 reconstruction project.
  • A temporary median island refuge will be installed the week of Sept. 14 and will remain in place for approximately 30 days.
  • Community feedback is being sought during the 30 day testing period.
  • Median refuge islands allow people who walk and bike the ability to cross only one lane of traffic at at time, which shortens the distance for crossing and provides a refuge.
  • Click here to learn more and to take a brief survey on the safety demonstration project. Survey closes at 5 pm on Oct. 20.
  • Paper surveys are available at Marshall City Hall (temporary location at SMSU)


  • Work in 2025 will require a detour


  • The contractor for the project will be determined after the project has been awarded
