Road work to begin on Highway 58 in Zumbrota

Posted:

ZUMBROTA, Minn. (KTTC) -- MnDot hosted a meeting at Zumbrota City Hall Wednesday afternoon to educate citizens about an upcoming project on Highway 58.

Workers will resurface, mill and overlay the pavement throughout the city this summer.

It's an 18.5 mile project.  Crews will put in pedestrian curb ramps to make for shorter crosswalks and left turn lanes on some roads, as well as updating the storm sewers.

During the paving, there will be some parking restrictions in downtown Zumbrota, but representatives from MnDOT say there will not be major traffic problems in the area.

"There was some concerns from the businesses -- the impacts associated with the pedestrian curb ramps. And, traffic concerns. But when we found out we didn't need to detour the road, it seemed like most of the business owners were pleased with that," said Tony Wagner from MnDot.

The $5 million project will begin May 6 and finish mid-July, depending on weather conditions. Wagner said the project won't interfere with the Zumbrota city festival in mid-June.
