ST. PAUL – Several area roads and bridges will receive significant improvements over the next two summers according to State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston).

“The Minnesota Department of Transportation has released its 2015 road construction project list, and Fillmore and Houston County residents can expect to see a number of area roadways receiving needed upgrades in the coming months,” Davids said.

This summer, construction crews will begin repairing Highway 63 near Spring Valley from Highway 16 to the Iowa border. Culvert replacement and bridge repair is also included in this project. Reconstruction of Highway 43 through Rushford that began last year will also continue this summer.

A retaining wall will be reconstructed on Highway 44 near Hokah, and the Inspiration Point historic wayside rest will also be restored along Highway 16 near Lanesboro. Finally, there will be a bridge replacement mile south of Brownsville along Highway 26.

“Drivers can expects a few minor inconveniences this summer, but the payoff of safer roads and bridges should be well worth the wait,” Davids concluded.
