The resurfacing project on U.S. Highway 59 and Highway 19 in Lyon and Yellow Medicine counties is complete, except for a small patch on US 59 that requires additional work. The patch will be repaired yet this fall under traffic.
The project included resurfacing 17 miles of U.S. Highway 59 from north of Lyon County Road 33 to south of Yellow Medicine County Road 3. It also included resurfacing one mile of Highway 19 in Marshall from the junction of Highway 19/23 to just west of 280th Avenue.
Benefits of the project include a smoother road surface and extended pavement life. The project cost $2.7 million and the contractor is Duininck, Inc.
