Highway 30 Construction Begins May 9 in Rushford | Community

Construction is expected to begin May 9, weather permitting, for the Highway 30 project in Rushford, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).

the project includes the reconstruction of one-half mile of Highway 30 from the western city limits to Highway 43 (Mill Street). It also includes replacing and extending existing sidewalks, replacing storm sewer lines and structures, improving downtown lighting, and rebuilding sanitary sewers, water lines and municipal services. The work should be completed by the end of October.

Construction steps

The project will be divided into two construction phases. The first stage is scheduled for May 9 to the end of July and work will take place downtown/east (Mill Street/Highway 43 to West Stevens Avenue). The second stage is scheduled for late July to late October and work will take place at the west end (West Stevens Avenue to the west city limits).

Traffic impacts

During the two stages of construction, a DEVIATION will be set up for transit traffic. The detour will direct travelers throughout the construction area using Highway 43, Highway 16 and Cooperative Way.

Residents, business owners and visitors can access the project area via adjacent local streets; however, on-street parking within the project will not be permitted during construction. Vehicular traffic should plan to access the properties by parking in the side street or nearest car park. The sidewalk on one side of the road will remain open during construction.
