Many highway construction projects that were originally slated for completion in October are moving into the November and possibly December timeframes as southcentral Minnesota continues to experience a wet construction season.
“We want the motoring public to know we are doing everything we can to remove detours and complete projects this season,” explains Peter Harff, acting assistant district engineer for project delivery.

Several highway projects without detours continue on Highway 15 in Fairmont and Highway 15 in New Ulm as well as the 2017-18 four-lane expansion grading project on Highway 60 between Windom and Mountain Lake.

Highway 22 reconstruction from Mankato to Mapleton remains detoured until early November. Paving and a new bridge built at Beauford are complete.  However, shaping the ditches and seeding is impacted by wet conditions and signing and striping also remain unfinished.  The Highway 22 project is a two-year project with another detour next year.  Information can be found at and an open house is scheduled for Oct. 26.

Highway 83 roundabout at the new intersection Blue Earth County Road 12 also remains closed and detoured until mid-November as paving is in progress, but lighting, striping and signing remain.

Highway 99 Bridge in St. Peter added working days and more crews in an attempt to complete the project this season.  Currently the historic bridge preservation is scheduled for early December opening. Weather, however, needs to cooperate for crews to paint, even with the covering, and there are still unknowns in the metal beams as they move the tenting to the second half of the bridge.  Detour information and a webcam area available at

Highway 4 reconstruction in St. James is a multi-year project that will keep the detour in place to enable construction as long as ground and weather conditions allow.  The more work done this season, the less impact to motorists and residents next year.  Asphalt paving of side road connections is underway and prep for concrete work continues.  More information at

MnDOT reminds motorists to drive safely wherever construction is taking place and to check for both construction and winter driving conditions.
