Nobles County planning seal coat work, new bridges

As part of the continued effort to improve and maintain Nobles County’s paved road system, the county has contracted with Morris Sealcoat and Trucking Inc. to seal coat approximately 50 miles of its county highway system.

Seal coat activities are expected to begin in mid-August and last approximately two to three weeks. While the contractor is performing this work, the traveling public may experience 10- to 15-minute delays. Traffic will be directed by flaggers and pilot cars in all active work areas.

For the first couple of weeks following the seal coat installation, traffic speeds will be limited to 40 miles per hour. Freshly laid rock chips used for the seal coat project are more easily dislodged during this period when traveling at higher speeds. Motorists who experience vehicle damage caused by these potential road hazards are liable for the damage incurred. Nobles County is not responsible or liable for any damage resulting to vehicles and motorists traveling through these locations.

Along with the road improvements this year, Nobles County is also replacing two bridge crossings within the county. These new bridges are intended to improve flow, roadway width and safety at these locations.

Nobles County has contracted with Structural Specialties Inc. for construction of these bridges. The construction for new bridge 53537 on County State Aid Highway 19 is expected to begin in early August and will take approximately 12-14 weeks to complete. The construction of new bridge 53538 on County State Aid Highway 6 is expected to begin in late fall and be completed in June 2024. Motorists are asked to heed detour signs and be aware of changing road closures in their areas of travel. Detours around projects will vary, so expect delays.
