A detour of Highway 19 near Morton will begin August 24 so crews can complete repairs for drainage issues discovered during last year’s slope stabilization project.
The project is located approximately three miles east of Morton. Traffic will be routed on U.S. Highway 71 and Renville County Roads 4 and 5.
The repair will cost $200,000 and be completed by September 14. The start and end dates could change due to unforeseeable circumstances. The contractor is Carl Bolander and Sons, LLC.
