Motorists traveling on Highway 15 from Highway 212 to Denver Avenue in Hutchinson will experience delays as crews begin milling and bituminous paving today (Thursday, July 11th).
The bituminous paving is being done in conjunction with the $5.2 million roadway improvement project that began on June 3rd. The project also includes constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of Highway 15 and McLeod County Road 115 (Airport Road).
MnDot officials say paving is expected to be completed by mid-August, weather permitting. Roundabout construction is on schedule for an early August completion date. An early September completion is planned for the remainder of the project.
MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, and reminds them to slow down in the work zone and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
