MANKATO, Minn. – Construction on Highway 15/60 near Madelia is complete and traffic restrictions have been removed, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

MnDOT resurfaced seven miles of Highway 15/60 from the Highway 15/60 interchange south of Madelia to the Highway 15/60 interchange north of Madelia during the two-year (2022-2023) project. Construction included resurfacing the eastbound and westbound lanes, lighting, drainage repairs, updating guardrail, and rehabbing several bridges.

Benefits of the projects include improved pavements and drainage, smoother road surfaces and increased safety along the corridor. Hoffman Construction Company was the prime contractor on the $24,988,466.21 project.
