MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists traveling Highway 15/60 near Madelia should expect changes to traffic starting Friday, June 16, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

MnDOT is resurfacing seven miles of Highway 15/60 from the Highway 15/60 interchange south of Madelia to the Highway 15/60 interchange north of Madelia. This is the second year of a two-year project. Construction this year includes resurfacing the westbound lanes, lighting, drainage repairs, updating guardrail, and rehabbing several bridges. Construction on the eastbound lanes of Highway 15/60 was completed in 2022.

Benefits of the projects include improved pavements and drainage, smoother road surfaces and increased safety along the corridor.

Hoffman Construction Company was awarded the project with a bid of $24,988,466.21.
