Highway 4 south of Sleepy Eye
To open soon

Mankato, Minn. - State Highway 4 south of Sleepy Eye should open to traffic for the July 4 Holiday weekend, according to Robert Williams, project engineer at the Minnesota Department of Transportation in Windom.

Highway 4 has been detoured since the week of June 14 to accommodate the replacement of a bridge over a ditch. The project was expected to take four weeks, but the contractor completed it well ahead of schedule.

The bridge that was replaced with a double box culvert is about nine miles south of Sleepy Eye, near Brown County Highway 20.

Mathiowetz Construction Company of Sleepy Eye was awarded the project with a bid of $222,668.
