REVISED: Highway 44 detour in Houston County
ROCHESTER, Minn. — Traffic on Highway 44 will be detoured beginning the second week in May as crews replace a culvert. The detour will be in effect for three weeks, weather permitting.
REVISED detour route:
- Highway 76
- South Prairie Drive
- Houston County Road 5
- Houston County Road 3
- Highway 44
Traffic will now be detoured into downtown Caledonia. Motorists can expect lane shifts at Houston County Road 3 and Houston County Road 5 and a change in signal timing at Houston County Road 3 and Kingston Street.
The culvert replacement is part of a larger resurfacing project on Highway 44.
When the project is complete, motorists will experience a smoother ride surface and a safer highway with new guardrail.
Mathy Construction is the prime contractor for the $5.4 million project, which also includes the resurfacing of Highway 76 from Highway 44 to Highway 16.
MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
