McLeod County Roads Close for Culvert Work 06 Nov 12

Babcock Avenue, south of Lester Prairie is now closed between 165th Street and 175th Street.

McLeod County officials say a Contractor began installing a new concrete box culvert on Silver Creek Monday. The road will likely be closed for a week or so. There will not be a detour installed, local traffic should use adjacent Township roads.

The contractor will be installing 2 similar box culverts on 165th street and CR 74 but those closures are temporarily on hold due to utility relocation issues.

County Road 7, northeast of Hutchinson is scheduled to close today (Tuesday) between 240th Street and Common Street (Meeker Co. line).

Officials say a Contractor will be replacing a centerline culvert. The road should reopen Thursday (11/8).

McLeod County officials say there will not be a detour installed at that location either and local traffic should use adjacent roads.
