Hwy 19 Winthrop box culvert replacement project postponed to 2023

WILLMAR, Minn. – The Highway 19 box culvert replacement project in Winthrop will not be completed this year due to unanticipated soils conditions. The roadway will be restored and reopened to traffic by the end of October, weather permitting.

Travelers will continue to be detoured to Highway 15, Sibley County Road 10, and Sibley County Road 4 until the roadway is restored.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is determining additional actions needed to install the box culvert, which will occur during the 2023 construction season.
