  • Over the next 2 to 3 weeks there will be a focused effort to perform various utility and construction activities from 7th St. to 1st St. This will require several short term and longer-term interruptions to access to both businesses and residences.
  • Road/pedestrian crossing locations

The public should be aware that as work progresses both in the City of Madison Lake and in the rural locations west and east of the city, that the condition of the roadway is subject to change from within the timeframe of a day.  The department would like to remind the local traveling public that while Hwy 60 is accessible to local traffic, they should expect delays and closures with minimal advanced warning.  The nature of construction work requires flexibility and adjustment with work type and location to assure completion in a timely manner.  Please plan on limiting your time on Hwy 60 and allow time for using a different route to your destination. 

The various contracting forces, City of Madison Lake engineering staff and MnDOT have been appreciative of the understanding and patience of the residence who live along Hwy 60. In particular, the people who live, work, shop, and worship in Madison Lake during this fast-paced construction process. While construction impacts everyone to a certain extent, the City of Madison Lake has experienced the brunt of the disruption caused by this needed work.  We are working as quickly as possible to provide a new efficient, safe, and cost-effective roadway and infrastructure.  Thus far, there has been limited delays due to weather or other uncontrollable events and we expect that the work is on schedule to be completed as originally intended.
