Detour for Highway 59

July 31, 2013

north of Worthington
Mankato, MN The detour for Highway 59 is expected to expand on August 5 for construction on the north edge of Worthington for about two months as the city replaces culverts and makes other infrastructure improvements.

The detour for Highway 59 motorists north of I-90 will include Nobles County Roads 25, 7 and 14.

Worthington was awarded a Transportation Economic Development (TED) grant to extend the 4-lane divided section of Hwy 59 north 1,200 feet, and to construct and extend turning lanes. These improvements will open up 750 acres for a new industrial park and create access to a new bioscience park. The new industrial park is expected to create 440 jobs in the next five years.

South of I-90, Highway 59 motorists continue to be detoured to Nobles County Road 10 until the completion of the Highway 60 reconstruction this fall.
