The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced Friday that the Highway 68 Minneota to Marshall project start date is delayed due to utility relocation issues.

Originally planned to start Monday, May 9, the schedule is being reevaluated and more information will be available soon.

The project includes improvements to approximately 11 miles of Hwy 68 from North Grant Street in Minneota to the Redwood River in Marshall, including shoulder widening and culvert replacements. Drainage repairs near Porter are also included in the project.
