Highway 43 construction in Fillmore County complete


ROCHESTER, Minn. – The Highway 43 construction project from Highway 16 to Highway 44 is complete and the highway is fully open to motorists, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Highway 43 was down to single-lane traffic, controlled by flaggers, while crews resurfaced the road.

The completed project provides motorists with a smoother ride surface and a safer highway.

MnDOT thanks motorists for their patience during this project, which also included the resurfacing of Highway 250 between Highway 16 (Lanesboro) and Highway 30.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
