Roads to be prepped for detour
MANKATO -- Motorists should expect brief delays on Nobles County 4 and Nobles County 5 beginning Sept. 13, as the Minnesota Department of Transportation makes improvements to the roads to handle Minnesota 60 traffic when the detour goes into effect in 2011.
The improvements, which should take two to three weeks, include paving weak sections, signing, striping and preparing a temporary site for the Travel Information Center at the Minnesota/Iowa state line.
Motorists are advised to drive with caution and watch for flaggers on Nobles County 4 and Nobles County 5.
The Minnesota 60 construction project from Nobles County 4 to Paul Avenue began on Aug. 16.
