Construction on Hwys 15/60 near Madelia wraps up for 2022

MANKATO, Minn. – Construction on Highways 15/60 near Madelia is nearing completion for 2022, and the detour and ramp restrictions are expected to be removed today, Nov. 9, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Some temporary lane restrictions should be expected as minor finishing work continues until mid-November.

Motorists are reminded that construction on Hwy 15/60 near Madelia is a two-year project. The eastbound lanes were under construction in 2022, and the westbound lanes will be under construction next year.

The 2022-2023 project includes resurfacing seven miles from the Hwy 15/60 interchange south of Madelia to the Hwy 15/60 interchange north of Madelia. The project also includes lighting, drainage repairs, updating guardrail and rehabbing several bridges.

Benefits of the project include improved pavements and drainage, smoother road surfaces and increased safety along the corridor.

Hoffman Construction Company was awarded the project with a bid of $24,988,466.21.
