Highway 30 resurfacing results in detour beginning June 6

Public invited to open house on June 2



MANKATO, Minn. – Traffic on Highway 30 from Amboy to Mapleton will be detoured beginning June 6 for a resurfacing project, according to Minnesota Department of Transportation.


The first stage of construction results in a detour to Highway 169 and Blue Earth County Roads 142 and 18.  The detour will change to Blue Earth County Roads 29 and 7 by mid-July for the second stage of construction.


The project consists of restoring or reclaiming the pavement along with minor culvert and guardrail improvements and will provide a smoother, safer ride when it is complete in late August.


A public open house to address concerns about the construction and detour is being held on Thursday, June 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Mapleton Fire Hall, 104 2nd Avenue Northeast.  The contractor, Knife River Construction, and Mn/DOT officials will be present.
