The Minnesota Department of Transportation says a project to resurface Highway 44 from Mabel to Highway 52 in Fillmore County gets underway on Monday, June 24th.
Motorists will be detoured to Highway 43, Fillmore County Road 12, and Fillmore County Road 21.
The detour is necessary while crews replace culverts and will remain until early August.
Once the detour is lifted flaggers will control traffic until the project is completed in October.
The resurfacing project is tied to a reconstruction project on Highway 44 in Spring Grove.
Mathy Construction is the contractor.
