Detour to county roads extended to October


MANKATO, Minn. – The Hwy 4 bridge replacement south of Sleepy Eye will restart on Monday, Aug. 15, after a six-week delay triggered by the Minnesota government shutdown.

The project is replacing the Hwy 4 bridge over the Little Cottonwood River. Duininck, Inc, of Prinsburg, is the primary contractor on the project.
