A public informational Open House for the Highway 15/McLeod County Road 115 Roundabout and Highway 15 Resurfacing Project is being held this evening (Wednesday, May 15th.)
Officials say the meeting will be from 5:00pm – 7:00pm at the Hutchinson Event Center, 1005 Highway 15 South, Plaza 15, Hutchinson.
Construction for the roundabout is expected to begin in June, which will mean the road will be closed. Completion is expect in August, weather permitting.
The resurfacing of Highway 15 will be from Highway 212 north to Denver Avenue in Hutchinson. That project is expected to be complete before August 10th.
On Tuesday night, the Hutchinson City Council approved awarding the city’s portion of the $5.1-million project as part of the bonding process. City Engineer Kent Exner says Hutchinson’s portion of the project came in at about $194,000.
