Highway 43 project update


Thu, Mar 27th, 2014
Posted in Peterson The Great Outdoors

PETERSON, Minn. - Last November we began a discussion about the Highway 43 reconstruction project through Rushford. At that time we said the project will begin in late April or May. We now know that the earliest the project will begin is late May.

As previously noted, Highway 43 in Rushford will be dug up “bridge to bridge.” The street, along with the curb, gutter, sidewalk, and all the utilities buried beneath the street will be torn up and reconstructed. Much of the water and sewer system under the road has been in place for nearly 100 years. Since it’s a six-month project, the later start means it will likely be completed in November. At the end of the project we will not only have a nicely paved road through town, we’ll have updated and repaired utilities that will hopefully last another 100 years or more.

We will do everything we can to ensure customer and community access during construction. As construction plans are finalized, project maps and detour routes will be published and available on the city website, www.rushford.govoffice.com. A marketing communications plan to keep our community - citizens and visitors - informed of construction plans is in place and will also soon be available on the website.

During the next six to eight weeks, we will be working with local businesses and community groups to increase awareness and support to minimize disruptions. You can help by staying informed, keeping a positive attitude about the long-term benefits of the project, and helping your fellow citizens and community visitors navigate the detours.
