Rushford, MN (KROC-AM News)Construction crews reopened a lengthy stretch of Hwy. 43 between Rushford and Mable Friday. 


A detour directed motorists away from the highway in Fillmore County that allowed crews to replace 11 centerline drainage pipes, repair 55 centerline drainage pipes, and stabilized three areas with eroding slopes and shoulders along the road, according to a MnDOT news release. The project resurfacing a 22-mile stretch of the highway is expected to wrap up in October.

MnDOT says crews still have paving work to do as well as striping and replacing a guardrail. Officials say motorists traveling through the work zone should still expect short traffic delays while workers put the finishing touches on the road project.

Some might make you laugh (cause they are true) and others may have you scratching your head a bit because this is the first time you've realized we have a few issues happening in our gorgeous city. Scroll through the list that were sent to me and see how many you agree with.
