ROCHESTER, Minnesota (WXOW) – Highway 44 in Fillmore County will close from Mabel to Highway 52 beginning Monday (06/24), as crews begin a resurfacing and culvert replacement project.
Motorists will be detoured to Highway 43, Fillmore County Road 12 and Fillmore County Road 21. The detour will remain in place until early August, weather permitting.
Once the detour is lifted, flaggers will control traffic throughout the remainder of project, which is scheduled to continue through October.
The resurfacing project is tied to a reconstruction project on Highway 44 in Spring Grove. MinnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
