Detours set to begin May 3 for roundabout work
Will affect motorists traveling Minnesota 60 through Worthington
MANKATO — Motorists traveling Minnesota 60 in Worthington can expect detours beginning Monday, May 3, weather permitting, as the inside islands and some pavement of three roundabouts will be reconstructed.
The roundabouts are at the intersections of Interstate 90, Oxford Street and Nobles County 35 in Worthington. The detours will remain in place until the end of construction, but access to businesses will be provided throughout the project.
The construction project includes the replacement of the roundabout center curbs, truck aprons, areas of failed pavement and restriping.
Construction will take place in three stages, one at a time, each with its own set of detours:
Stage 1: Minnesota 60/I-90 roundabout
Stage 2: Minnesota 60/Nobles County 33 roundabout
Stage 3: Minnesota 60/Nobles County 35 roundabout
When completed in August, the redesign of the roundabout curbs to better accommodate large trucks and minimize load shift will improve motorist safety.
Hoffman Concrete Inc. was awarded the projects with a bid of $977,441.46.
