Highway 43 construction wraps up in Rushford for winter


Fri, Nov 21st, 2014
Posted in Rushford State of Minnesota

ROCHESTER, MN – Construction work on Highway 43 through Rushford has wrapped up for the winter on the city-led project and will resume in spring for final completion work, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists and residents may notice some related work on the project such as the contractor pouring sidewalk and possibly other concrete infrastructure, weather permitting. The driving lanes are paved, but some shoulder areas remain unpaved.

The project involved replacement of the street and improvement of curb, gutter, sidewalks and utilities along a one-mile stretch in the city, according to the city of Rushford.

A short detour was used and is being lifted for the winter season. Oversized and overweight vehicles should continue to use the detour that was established during the project.

Prior to the project, much of the water and sewer system under the road had been in place for nearly 100 years. When the project is complete, motorists will experience a smoother ride surface and a safer highway; businesses and residents will have updated and repaired utilities that are expected to last 50 years or more. The remaining work not completed before the snow and freezing temperatures arrived will be completed next spring.

McHugh Excavating of Onal aska, Wisconsin, is the prime contractor for the $2.97 million project. The city of Rushford led this project. MnDOT provided technical and financial support in excess of $1.5 million. With this project, MnDOT is working with the city to enhance an efficient and effective transportation system in southeastern Minnesota.
