Minnesota 86 detour is no more

Construction on Minnesota 86 through Lakefield is complete and the detour was expected to be removed Thursday, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic had been detoured since mid-April for reconstruction of 1.3 miles of Minnesota 86. The project included grading, pavement, utility replacement, lighting, drainage and sidewalk reconstruction.

Benefits of the project include improved pedestrian accommodations, updated utilities, smoother road surfaces and increased safety along the corridor.

R & R Excavating, Inc. was awarded the project with a bid of $8,295,538.92.
