Hwy 13 construction project from New Richland to Waseca complete

MANKATO, Minn. — The detour for Hwy 13 between New Richland and Waseca has been removed as crews complete a resurfacing project.

Paving work was finished on Friday, July 27, and crews will finish final striping, intersection lighting and maintenance work over the next two weeks. Motorists will experience minimal delays while finish work is being completed, but the roadway will remain open.

During Hwy 13 construction, eleven miles were resurfaced, six culverts were replaced, guardrails were updated, county road intersection lighting was installed and an Active Pedestrian Crosswalk Flasher System was installed at Hwy 13 and Waseca County Road 12.

Ulland Brothers, Inc., of Albert Lea, MN, was awarded the contract with a bid of $3,900,000.
