Storm sewer inspection to begin in downtown Hutchinson

WILLMAR, Minn. – Crews from Hydro-Klean start video inspection of the storm sewer underneath Highway 15 in downtown Hutchinson today, November 10.

Storm sewers under Highway 15 from 1st. Ave. NE to Milwaukee Ave. will be inspected using a robot with a camera from a work truck above ground.

Portable message boards have been placed on both ends of the project to alert drivers of the work and possible delays. 

Motorists should expect minor delays because of the placement of manholes in the driving lane. The majority of work will be done at night to limit the impact to traffic.  Work is expected to be complete in two weeks.
