Motorists traveling on Highway 15 north of Madelia may experience traffic delays beginning Thursday, August 11 as crews begin resurfacing the highway, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists can expect to encounter lane closures, flaggers, and pilot cars on Highway 15 from Madelia to the Brown/Watonwan County line until the resurfacing work is completed in early October.

Approximately five miles of Highway 15 from the Highway 15/Highway 60 interchange to the Watonwan/Brown County line will be resurfaced. Project work also includes culvert repairs, installing snow fence along Highway 15 near County Road 3, installation of lighting at County Road 58 and County Road 6 intersections, and updating the bridges at Highway 15/Highway 60 and over the railroad.

The project is expected to be complete in mid-November, weather permitting.
