Hwy 15 New Ulm construction to wrap up Friday

MANKATO, Minn. — Construction on Highway 15 from New Ulm to Searles is expected to wrap up this Friday, September 22 and the detours removed.

Detours have been in-place since May and numerous restrictions took place along Broadway throughout the project. MnDOT thanks area motorists for their patience and inconvenience.

The Highway 15 project extended from Highway 14 to 170th Street and included resurfacing the deteriorating pavement on Highway 15, adding center two-way left turn lane between Bridge Street and Cottonwood Street and repairing two bridges. Improvements to sidewalks and traffic signals have been made as well as some utility work.

Special thanks to project partners at the city of New Ulm and for posting weekly updates at www.ci.new-ulm.mn.us/.

Central Specialties, Inc., of Alexandria was awarded the project with a bid of $7,067,108.
