Open house in Fairmont set for I-90 construction impacts

MANKTO, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will hold an open house to share information on the Interstate 90 construction project from Sherburn to Fairmont expected to begin in May.

Businesses and residents are encouraged to attend the open house from 4 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 28 at the Holiday Inn, 1201 Torgerson Dr., Fairmont. 

MnDOT staff and the contractor will be on hand to answer questions and share construction information, including staging and closures at various interchanges.

While I-90 traffic will be maintained with two lanes of two-way traffic, ramps at interchanges impacted at varying times during the May to August construction include Highway 263, Martin County Road 39 and Highway 15.

The project includes resurfacing the westbound lanes between Sherburn and Fairmont and the eastbound lanes for about a mile west of Fairmont. Four bridges will be repaired and lighting replaced. Ulland Brothers, Inc. of Albert Lea have been awarded the project with a bid of $7,392,429.

More information on this project (including a construction staging map) as well as other I-90 preservation projects in southwestern Minnesota can be found at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/I90preserve/index.html.
