The Redwood County Highway Department has put together a new video to show the public what it’s been up to in recent years. Anthony Sellner, County Engineer, and Larry Hubert, Maintenance Foreman and Supervisor, go through it in a video now available to the public. 

By the end of 2024, the Redwood County Highway Department will have completed 127 miles of pavement rehabilitation since 2019, accounting for 39% of all paved county roadways.  Even so, there is an estimated 115 more miles of pavement rehabilitation or reconstruction still needed.  Of that 115 miles, 69 miles still have not had funding approved, with an estimated value of $26M. 

There is also substantial bridge reconstruction within Redwood County, funded largely by State and Federal bridge funds.  The Highway Department has reconstructed 23 bridge structures between 2021 and 2023, and is looking to reconstruct another 48 structures between 2024 and 2029.  These 71 structures represent 24% of all bridge structures in the County. 

Many of the bridges needing replacement were built around the same time period, and are all coming due to be replaced in a similar time frame.  The Highway Department has secured over $18M in bridge funding that will be completed over the next two years.
