Hwy 60 Eagle Lake to Elysian Construction Complete

MANKATO, MN — Construction on Highway 60 between Eagle Lake and Elysian (Phase 1) is complete and the detour was recently removed.

The second phase of construction on Highway 60 between the City of Elysian to the junction with Highway 13 in Waterville is underway and traffic is detoured to Highway 13 in Waterville, Le Sueur County Road 12 (Tetonka Lake Road), Le Sueur County Road 11, and Highway 60.

Construction of Highway 60 between the City of Elysian and Waterville is expected to be complete in October.

Minnesota Department of Transportation officials have been working closely with the cities of Madison Lake, Elysian, and Waterville over the past few years to prepare for the project that includes:

  • Pavement improvements throughout the 17-mile corridor, which includes reclaiming and resurfacing pavement and reconstructing through Madison Lake
  • Updating pedestrian ramps to meet Americans with Disabilities Act requirements
  • Removing and replacing sections of poor sidewalk and curb & gutter
  • Turn lanes and access modifications
  • County road lighting
  • Upgrading infrastructure in Madison Lake

The improvements will provide a smoother roadway and increase safety. Ulland Brothers, Inc. was awarded the projects with a bid of $20,167,682.08.
