The Blue Earth County Government Center $22 million expansion project is on track to finish in early 2020, about seven months ahead of schedule.

The county is embarking on the project to free up more space for departments and growing resident service needs. The new building will help bring together multiple departments in one central location, which will free up space at the nearby historical courthouse.

To that end, the county will replace its current 220-spot parking ramp with a 340-spot parking structure, along with some additional parking spots along the street. The new two-story addition to the south of the building will also include an unfinished basement, which will house a shower and potential gym equipment for county workers.

The renovations will address current and upcoming maintenance issues at the 60-year-old government center.

Wells is producing and erecting 16,388 sq. ft. of precast concrete on the parking structure phase of this project. Precast includes 90 members of architectural wall panels showcasing a mix of acid etch, and brick and cast-in stone in the shape of Blue Earth County.
