Hwy 43 Repaving

Fillmore County



In 2022, MnDOT will repave and replace culverts on Hwy 43 from Rushford to Mabel. This project was a flex project, meaning construction could have begun as early as 2022 or move to 2023. Recently, the funding was secured and this project will now be constructed during the summer of 2022.

Traffic impact

Two detours will be used during this project. The section A detour will be used to direct travelers around Hwy 43 when section A is under construction. Once section A opens to traffic, then construction will begin on section B. The section B detour will route travelers around section B.

Once the pipe work is finished and the detours are lifted, delays may still be possible while the crews repave the roadway.

More details will be determined as construction nears. Questions or comments can be sent to the project management team through the contacts tab.
