About this project

Summary of work

Complete four-lane expansion of Hwy 60 from Windom to St. James which includes:

  • Two new eastbound lanes to the south of existing two-lane section in Butterfield to St. James (East Gap or Gap A) 6 miles
  • Two new eastbound lanes to the south of existing two-lane section in Mountain Lake to Butterfield (Middle Gap or Gap B) 5 miles
  • Two new westbound lanes to the north of existing two-lane section in Windom to Mountain Lake (West Gap or Gap C) 8 miles. This alignment was selected because it has fewer business and farmland impacts and is most cost effective.
  • Realignment of three county roads to lessen skew between roadways
  • Possible realignment in the Bingham Lake area
  • More final designs are underway

Cost estimate

  • $78 million
