Marshall, MN – Construction was set to start today, July 8, 2024, on a significant infrastructure project that will see extensive concrete repairs on Highway 59 and ADA updates in Marshall. This project, valued at approximately $4.4 million and managed by Interstate Improvement Inc., aims to enhance road quality and accessibility in the region.

Project Scope:

  • Highway 59 South of Garvin: Concrete repairs are set to begin on the section from 201st St. to Lyon CR 14. This segment is expected to take about seven weeks to complete.
  • Highway 59 South of Marshall: Concrete repairs will also commence today from Lyon CR 6 to Highway 23, with an estimated completion time of five weeks.
  • ADA Upgrades in Marshall: Sidewalks and pedestrian crossings will be updated to meet current ADA standards at the following locations:
    • Highway 19 from the Highway 23 intersection to Tiger Dr.
    • Highway 59 intersections with Susan Dr. and Boyer Dr.

Traffic Implications:

  • Detours: To accommodate the concrete repair work:
    • South of Garvin: Travelers will be rerouted via CR 48, CR 29, CR 5, and Hwy 14.
    • South of Marshall: Detours will direct traffic along Hwy 23, CR 35, and CR 6.
  • Intersection Closures: Short-term and intermittent closures will occur along Highway 59 for ADA work, potentially requiring minor detours.

Construction Timeline:

  • Start Date: July 8, 2024
  • End Date: October 18, 2024

The two segments of concrete repair work may overlap to expedite project completion.
