Frequently Asked Questions

Why is the entire width of the roadway and sidewalk being reconstructed?
Municipal utilities underneath Highway 15/Main Street need to be replaced. These utilities (sanitary sewer lines, water mains, and storm sewer) are some of the oldest in the city of Hutchinson and are past their useful life. Many of the downtown businesses are currently served by water lines from the alley that are undersized and inaccessible for repair and replacement. MnDOT and the city of Hutchinson are partnering on the project so that new water service lines will be installed from the upgraded Main Street water main to service the downtown buildings from the front (Highway 15 side).
