Minnesota 91 project includes working Sundays to beat cold weather

MANKATO -- In an effort to stay ahead of the colder weather and catch up from rain days, the resurfacing subcontractor will be working on several upcoming Sundays on the Minnesota 91 project north of Adrian.

Two detours are currently in effect in Nobles and Murray counties. The stage one detour between Adrian and Lismore (Nobles County Roads 35, 15 and 16) is expected to be removed around Oct. 4. The second (stage 2) detour consists of Nobles County Road 15, Murray County Road 29 and Minnesota 30 and is expected to be in place until mid-October. The construction project includes bridge replacements and rural box culvert construction that requires detouring Minnesota 91.

Resurfacing will be completed as well as sidewalk and driveway improvements in Adrian and Lake Wilson and additional lighting at rural intersections. The expected project completion date is June 2020. This 45 mile-long construction job completes Minnesota 91 projects planned in both MnDOT District 7 – Mankato (Nobles County) and MnDOT District 8 – Willmar (Murray and Lyon counties).
