The construction of two additional lanes for Highway 60 between St. James and Butterfield gets underway this week. The 2-year project involves grading, paving and bridge work for two additional lanes south of the current two lanes. Work will begin on Wednesday, with a two-month detour then being planned to start in mid-August. When the 5-mile detour is in place, motorists will be directed to Highway 4 and Watonwan County Roads 10 and 5. This is the first of three projects planned to complete the expansion of Highway 60 to a four-lane roadway. The gap between Butterfield and Mountain Lake is scheduled for construction beginning in 2015, and work on the section from Mountain Lake to Windom starts in 2017. Mathiowetz Construction of Sleepy Eye is the contractor on the $14-million project from St. James to Butterfield.
