Summary of work

Beginning July 13, 2020, MnDOT repaved Hwy 42 from Plainview to the west side of the newly replaced bridge west of Hwy 61. Four culverts were replaced, which required that the road be excavated in those locations. Additionally, crews regraded an area which required closure of the road. 

Traffic impacts

Current traffic impacts

The detour has been removed so Hwy 42 traffic is open between Plainview and Kellogg but motorists should be alert for workers as crews wrap up work.
