Activity is increasing on the overlay, ADA and signal upgrades to TH 15 through the City. Duininck, Inc. is the general contractor and is completing the work under a MNDOT contract. The City will be providing periodic updates through the construction blog as well as through the City Facebook account. For additional information you can visit the MNDOT project page at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/hwy15fairmont/index.html.
A sub-contractor has started some preliminary signal work. This work has disabled some of the vehicle detection systems so drivers may see longer green light cycles during this work. All of the signals will be upgraded as part of this project with 4 of the locations receiving complete new systems. Another sub-contractor is working on the ADA improvements and beginning removals along the project at various intersections. Traffic control will be changing frequently to accommodate vehicles along the entire route.
Intersections along TH 15 that are going to be impacted over the next several days include Adams Ave, Tilden St (mall entrance), and 4th St. Please watch for traffic changes in these areas.
