Highway 15 work causes detour south of Winthrop

Motorists traveling on Highway 15 south of Winthrop can expect a detour which started Monday, Sept. 18, for approximately a week so crews can complete pavement repairs, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Highway 15 will be closed at the junction of Highway 19 to Sibley County Road 33 15 (551st Avenue). Traffic will be detoured to Sibley County Road 33 15 (551st Avenue), South Sibley Street, North Redwood Street, and Highway 19 until the work is complete.
Concrete for 40 feet on each side of the railroad tracks just south of Highway 19 was in bad condition and has been removed and will be replaced with bituminous.
On Monday, two inches of the highway was milled up to Highway 19.
The plan is for the holes to be filled on Tuesday and bituminous put down on Wednesday.
The highway would be open as early as Thursday afternoon or possibly on Friday.
More work is happening on the southwest edge of Winthrop.
Great River Energy is putting up new transmission lines for their sub-station on County State Aid Highway 33 and Highway 15.
