Traffic switched from Nobles County Road 35 to Nobles County Road 33


MANKATO, Minn. – A minor change to the Hwy 60 detour in Worthington will take place June 22 to prepare for the construction of a new Union Pacific Railroad Bridge over Hwy 60.

The replacement of the railroad bridge by Lunda Construction Company is part of the Hwy 60 expansion from Bigelow to I-90 in Worthington.


R & G Construction Company of Marshall is the prime contractor for the Paul Avenue to Nobles County Road 35 segment.

Mathiowetz Construction of Sleepy Eye is prime contractor for the rural segment from Nobles County Road 4 to Paul Avenue.
