Hwy 15 resurfacing project in Hutchinson begins July 11


Willmar, Minn. –  Motorists traveling on Hwy 15 from Hwy 212 to Denver Avenue in Hutchinson will experience delays as they encounter crews milling and bituminous paving.

The bituminous paving is being done in conjunction with the $5.2 million roadway improvement project that began on June 3, 2013.  The project also includes constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of Hwy 15 and McLeod County Road 115

Paving is expected to be completed by mid-August, weather permitting.    Roundabout construction is on schedule for an early August completion date.  An early September completion is planned for the remainder of the project.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, and reminds them to slow down in the work zone and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
