MnDOT will reconstruct Highway 15/Main Street from 2nd Ave., near the South Fork Crow River Bridge, to 5th Ave. S due to deteriorating pavement. Sidewalks and pedestrian crossings will be upgraded to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) standards. The City of Hutchinson will be replacing utilities (sanitary sewer & water) in downtown Hutchinson under Highway 15/Main Street. This work will require a detour.
In addition to the reconstruction of Highway 15/Main Street, the pavement from 5th Ave. S to just north of the roundabout at CR 115 (Airport Road) will be resurfaced. Current sidewalk and pedestrian crossings along this area will be upgraded to meet ADA standards. A north bound left turn lane at Linden Ave. will also be added. This work will be done under traffic and will not require a detour.
Both projects are scheduled for the 2020 construction season.
