Construction on Highway 15/60 Near Madelia

Mankato, Minn. - As early as June 1, construction on State Highway 15/60 near Madelia may start, according to Ken Janovsky, project supervisor at the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists should expect lane closures and speeds reduced to 40 mph on Highway 60 where work consists of concrete rehabilitation, milling and surfacing during June and July.

On Highway 15 just north of Madelia, traffic will be detoured throughout June to Watonwan County Roads 3 and 9 through Madelia for the road to be re-graded and surfaced.

The project was awarded to Central Specialties, Incorporated of Alexandria with a bid of $2,599,342.

Mn/DOT reminds motorists to drive with caution and be aware of workers, equipment and traffic control devices.

Another resurfacing project on a short section of Highway 15 south of Truman and Highway 262 near Granada was also awarded to Central Specialties.

The Highways 15 and 262 project was initially scheduled to begin in early September, but the contractor may opt to begin in mid-July (after completing the Madelia project), according to Janovsky.
