WORTHINGTON -- Effective immediately, all township and county roads approaching Minnesota 60 Phase 1 construction will be closed. This includes CSAH 10, Palm Avenue, 280th and 290th streets, Oliver Avenue at Org only, 300th Street and CSAH 6 .
The portion of Minnesota 60 from Worthington Ag, Dykes Auto Salvage and Schaap Sanitation in the northbound lane will not be paved at this time. Access to all of these businesses will be maintained on the gravel portion of the unpaved Minnesota 60 until the end of the paving contract.
The Paul Avenue connection will remain open for access to Worthington Ag, Dykes Auto and Schaap Sanitation, or directly into Worthington on the gravel portion only.
The reason for the full closure is to protect the paving equipment, control stakes and string lines, along with helping to ensure the workers' safety.
