Highway 112 Project Taking Longer Than Expected

Mankato, Minn. - The safety project on State Highway 112 south of LeSueur is taking longer than initially expected due to rain and contractor delays, according to Project Supervisor Nathan Gannon, at the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

When the Highway 112 project began the week of May 17, Mn/DOT announced the project should be complete in about two months. Now it looks like it will continue to early August.

Highway 112 is detoured to LeSueur County Roads 115 and 15.

The safety project includes reconstructing the curve for a more gradual turn and realigning the connection with County Highway 23, and replacing a culvert about three miles east of the curve.

Southern Minnesota Construction of Mankato was awarded the project with a bid of $890,431.

Detours and other statewide travel information are available by dialing 511 or logging onto www.511mn.org
