Hwy 91 detours removed Friday

Project resumes next spring

MANKATO, Minn. – All detours on Highway 91 in Nobles, Murray and Lyon County are expected to be removed Friday, November 15 with final paving, culvert lining lighting, seeding and striping to take place next spring.

The contractor has completed all required contract work for this construction season plus six miles of pavement from Adrian to Lismore and improved sidewalk accessibility in Lake Wilson and Adrian.

The 2019 stages of construction required four different detours for Highway 91 users.  The work in 2020 will be accomplished under traffic and should be complete in late June, 2020.

The construction project includes bridge replacements and rural box culvert construction that requires detouring Highway 91. Resurfacing will be completed as well as sidewalk and driveway improvements in Adrian and Lake Wilson and additional lighting at rural intersections. The expected project completion date is June, 2020.

This 45 mile-long construction job completes Highway 91 projects planned in both MnDOT District 7 – Mankato (Nobles County) and MnDOT District 8 – Willmar (Murray and Lyon County). More information on the Highway 91 projects and the detour maps can be found at www.mndot.gov/d7/projects/hwy91/ and www.mndot.gov/d8/projects/hwy91 .
