MnDOT projects ahead in east-central Minnesota

MnDOT is cautioning drivers to prepare to slow down for work zones as construction projects start to ramp up, including some work in east central Minnesota.

Starting in mid-May, MnDOT will resurface and improve a 12-mile stretch of Highway 23 between Milaca and east of Ogilvie. The project will cost $6.5 million and require detours.

The northbound I-35 bridges over the Grindstone River near Hinckley are also planned for replacement early in 2024.

That work will include the northbound on-off ramps to Highway 48, which is expected to last a minimum of a month. 

During the ramp closures, Hinckley will be accessible via a detour to Highway 61.

A public meeting about the project is set for 5 p.m. on April 15 at the Hinckley Community Center.

MnDOT and the city of Mora will also finish adding a left turn lane at the Highway 65 and 9th Street intersection during the construction season.
