Hwy 19 Marshall to Vesta project resumes May 15

WILLMAR, Minn. —Work on the Hwy 19 Marshall to Vesta project will resume Tuesday, May 15, 2018. The project, which includes the resurfacing of Hwy 19 from Hwy 23 in Marshall to the west junction of Hwy 67 north of Vesta, was complete in the fall of 2017 except for the application of a seal coat and permanent striping.

Seal coat application will start May 15 and will take three to four days to complete. The project will need to cure for fourteen days before permanent striping can occur. Striping is scheduled for early June.

Highway 19 is a cold-in play recycle (CIR) project which consists of milling up in place pavement, crushing the materials, adding oil, remixing it, and re-laying the materials with a paver and compacting it. A CIR is cost effective and environmentally friendly because it recycles existing materials and reduces trucking by not having to remove the materials from the roadway while limiting the new materials that need to be hauled in.

Duininck Inc. is the contractor on the project.
