MnDOT restricts weight on Hwy 75 north of Luverne

Culvert damage found after heavy rains

MANKATO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation has restricted Hwy 75 north of Luverne to a six ton road with no over-size or over-weight permits allowed effective immediately.

The restriction on Hwy 75 is from Rock County Road 8 to Rock County Road 20 and will be in place until a damaged culvert can be repaired or replaced.

MnDOT crews have been monitoring the culvert located five miles north of Luverne since the heavy rains in June.  Recent reviews have determined that the damage to the box culvert has gotten worse resulting in the need to restrict weight over the culvert on Hwy 75.
