Mankato, Minn. - The State Highway 59 reconstruction project from Worthington to Fulda is set to begin Monday, May 17, according to Ken Janovsky, project supervisor from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be detoured to State Highway 62, Cottonwood County Road 19, Nobles County Road 1 and State Highway 60 until September.

Improvements include replacement of deteriorated pavement, new shoulders and a smoother surface, and turn lanes and wider shoulders in the Fulda area.

The public will still be able to access businesses along Highway 59 near Fulda and Worthington using the closest crossroad. Extreme caution should be taken when driving near a work zone.

For up-to-date travel information on Minnesota State Highways, call 511 or log onto www.511mn.org.

The contractor was let to James Cape and Sons Company of Racine, Wisconsin for a bid of $3,144,165.
