Highway 15 Paving Underway 12 Jul 13

Paving work on Highway 15 from Highway 212 to Denver Avenue in Hutchinson got underway Thursday, and motorists can expect to experience delays. The bituminous paving is being done in conjunction with the $5.2-million roadway improvement project that began on June 3rd. The project also includes constructing a new roundabout at the intersection of Highway 15 and Airport Road on the south end of Hutchinson. The paving is expected to be completed by mid-August, weather permitting. Roundabout construction is on schedule for an early August completion date, and an early September completion is planned for the remainder of the project. Mn/DOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones, and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
