U.S. 59 portion now open
WILLMAR -- Motorists can now travel on U.S. 59 between Slayton and Highway 14 as the entire detour has been removed, although crews will still be working in the area.
The remaining work is taking place along the shoulders and right of way between U.S. 59 and Valhalla Road. Crews are using flaggers to help keep the work zone safe.
Motorists should slow down, be prepared to stop and watch for workers and equipment while traveling the work zone.
