Hwy 105 project from Iowa border to Austin begins next week

(ABC 6 News) – The Minnesota DOT (MnDOT) announced the Highway 105 resurfacing project from the Iowa border to Austin will begin Monday, August 22.

Motorists should be alert for lane restrictions as crews begin resurfacing the road.

Work in Austin will include a detour for approximately two weeks beginning August 29 for storm sewer replacement at Highway 105 and 22nd Avenue SW.

Other work on the project includes accessibility improvements on sidewalks such as curb cuts as well as storm sewer and drainage work on the 11-mile work zone.

Flaggers will be in place during pavement removal and repaving work, so minor traffic delays are expected.

Work is scheduled to be complete at the end of September.
