---- — NORTH MANKATO — Motorists on Highway 14 in North Mankato may experience delays after 8 p.m. Monday as crews move in bridge beams for the interchange with Nicollet County Road 41.

The setting of eight 108-feet concrete beams weighing nearly 45 tons will require detouring Highway 14 traffic onto gravel ramps at the interchange under construction.

Traffic will be controlled with a pilot car and flagging operation.

Now in its second year, the Highway 14/County Road 41 project is scheduled for completition this fall.
