Highway 59 to Open Late Next Week

     

Mankato, Minn. - Weather permitting, State Highway 59 from Worthington to Fulda should be open to traffic by Friday, October 22, according to Ken Janovsky, project supervisor from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The Highway 59 project, which began in May and includes a detour to state and county roads, experienced a delay in August.

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

The prime contractor was James Cape and Sons Company of Racine, Wisconsin.

Mn/DOT officials thank Highway 59 users for their patience during this project.

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