Weekly construction updates

June 14-21, 2021
  • *The residents of the City of Madison Lake should be aware that there may be some limited electrical power outages as Xcel Energy begins the work of replacing the overhead lines with buried lines as well as during the individual property hook-ups. This work is currently progressing.
  • Driveway culverts throughout the project with minimal disruptions.
  • Concrete curb & gutter work in the City of Madison Lake from 4th St. to the approximate eastside of town.
  • Residents and businesses of Madison Lake will have limited access from 7th St. to 1st St.
  • Pedestrian and traffic access for the City of Madison Lake will be at Main St. and 4th St.
  • Bituminous paving is currently being progressed from the intersection of Highway 14/Highway 60 by the end of this week and progressing toward the City of Madison Lake, ending at Park Road.
  • Excavation work at the intersection of Hwy 60 and Le Sueur CSAH 13.  CSAH 13 will have no access to Hwy 60 for approximately 1 week.
  • Excavation at the intersection of Hwy 60 and CR 11 in the City of Elysian.  *Signs to be moved back to the original location at NE 2nd St.
  • Milling and pavement removal on TH 60 in the City of Elysian to east of the intersection of N. 1st St (CR 11).  The public should expect delays and limited to no access during this process. This work should take approximately 2 weeks.
  • Road/pedestrian crossing locations
  • *Residents along Hwy 60 from Hwy 14 to the City of Elysian should expect short-term delays with no access during the bituminous paving (aka asphalt) process, which is anticipated to begin on June 11.  The bituminous pavement will be placed in 2 or 3 separate lifts, depending on the location. Once the paver and all rollers have completed the placement and compaction work for a particular lift, it will be 20 to 30 minutes before passenger vehicles may drive on it.  It will be 60 minutes before commercial vehicles will be allowed on the paved surface.The public is strongly encouraged to not use Hwy 60 during the paving operations out of concern for the safety and damage for both the new roadway surface and the traveling public’s vehicles and persons.  MnDOT and the contractor will work with individual property owners and specifically notifying the residents of Tomahawk Ct. and Nifty Home Prod. Inc. as to the best timing of the anticipated impact avoidance during the paving process.

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 TH 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.
