The months-long road construction project in Glenwood is nearly complete.
The final detour of Highway 28/Minnesota Avenue has been removed, and traffic has resumed on the main roadway. All that is left is for crews to complete final striping of the road and various cleanup work.
Since April, portions of Highway 28/Minnesota Avenue have been closed as part of a resurfacing and reconstruction project on Highways 28, 29 and 104.
The project involved improving traffic flow, utility needs and boulevard improvements, and tackling pavement concerns and pedestrian accessibility requirements.
As part of the $9.3 million project, six blocks through downtown Glenwood were reconstructed and now include two 12-foot through-lanes and a 12-foot center left turn lane, plus a 10-foot parking lane, a 7-foot bike lane, and a 6- to 10-foot sidewalk.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges drivers to slow down, eliminate distractions and use caution as crews finish the project.
