MnDOT offers open house on final year of Highway 60 work April 24
Worthington businesses and residents encouraged to attend


MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation is hosting an open house on Highway 60 construction from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24 at the Nobles County Courthouse Farmer’s Room, 315 10th Street.


The final year of the Highway 60 expansion in Worthington includes multiple detours and varying impacts to area business and will resume in late April as soon as weather allows and be complete by late fall.


This final phase began last July 9 and includes work on Highway 60 from north of Nobles County Road 35 to Interstate 90.  The project includes complete reconstruction of Highway 60 and I-90 ramps including building roundabouts at the eastbound I-90 ramps and the Highway 59/60 intersection.  The intersection at Armour Road will be controlled with stop lights. The project also includes the construction of a major storm sewer to drain rainwater from the Union Pacific Railroad Bridge underpass.


R & G construction of Marshall is the contractor on the final project with a bid of $14,546,545.


Landscaping along Highway 60 in Worthington is scheduled for 2014.
