Resurfacing/ADA project on Hwys 75 and 40 in Madison starts June 12
WILLMAR, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation resurfacing and ADA project on Highways 75 and 40 gets underway in Madison on Monday, June 12. Work is scheduled to wrap up in mid-September. Start and end dates could change due to weather and other unforeseeable circumstances.
The project includes resurfacing Highway 75 from the north junction of Highway 40 to 8th Street, and resurfacing Highway 40 from the east junction of Highway 75 to Western Avenue. Sidewalks and pedestrian ramps along the project area will be updated to meet current Americans with Disabilities standards.
Crews will complete ADA updates first, working on one side of the street at a time to minimize disruptions to traffic; however, brief shoulder and lane closures are possible during ADA work. When paving begins, travelers will encounter alternate lane closures with flaggers directing traffic through the work zone. Drivers can expect brief delays and intersection closures during paving.
Project benefits and cost
Benefits of the project include a smoother road surface and compliance with ADA standards. Duininck, Inc., is the contractor, and the project cost is approximately $3.1 million.
