Hwy 60 Resurfacing

Zumbro Falls to Wabasha


Hwy 60 is back open to through traffic from Wabasha to Zumbro Falls beginning Friday, July 12.
The intersection at Hwy 60 and Hwy 61 has re-opened at Wabasha, which allows better flow of traffic.

Thank you for your patience during the culvert replacement work.

Next week, we will be pausing our construction work on Hwy 60 because of the Spring Creek Motocross Pro National Round 8 of the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross Championship in near Millville. There will be no construction activity on Hwy 60 the week of July 15-21 during the race week.

Milling and paving operations will resume on July 22. Paving work will take place through the summer and into early fall.

Paving will result in short traffic delays with flaggers stopping traffic in one direction, while a pilot car guides vehicles along a single lane in the other direction. Once one direction of traffic is through the work zone, the pilot car returns and guides the other direction through.

If you are traveling on Hwy 61, a detour between Lake City and Reads Landing begins on July 15, as crews begin culvert replacement work on that stretch of Hwy 61. You can learn more about it at the project website.

Hwy 60 Project Map
  • Traffic will be detoured May 20-June 28 during the culvert replacement portion of the project. Work begins on the Wabasha side.
  • Home owners and businesses may access Highway 60 from local roads, but be aware of where culvert replacements are occurring.
  • The project will take a break July 15-21 during the week of the Spring Creek National event.
  • Once detour is complete, traffic will be open, but there will be lane closures and short delays.
  • Detour route is Highway 63 north from Zumbro Falls to Highway 61 east at Lake City. Local traffic will have access to residences and businesses along Highway 60, but no through traffic.
  • Detour will be completed before Highway 61 project detours start near Wabasha on July 8.
