Reconstruction of the Minnesota 60/Nobles County 35 roundabout in Worthington is expected to be complete by Wednesday and the detour removed.
The roundabout reconstruction project began on May 3 and included the replacement of the center curbs, truck aprons, areas of failed pavement, and restriping of three roundabouts.
Additional repainting work may be necessary at the roundabouts later this month to improve the pavement markings and may require short-term closures of the roundabouts.
Construction took place in three stages, one at a time, each with its own set of detours. The redesign of the roundabout curbs to better accommodate large trucks and minimize load shift will improve motorist safety.
Hoffman Concrete Inc. was awarded the projects with a bid of $977,441.46.
