The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) Highway 67 bridge replacement project is set to begin this coming Monday (June 10).

The project is located one mile north of Echo and includes the replacement of two bridges over Boiling Spring Creek with a single concrete box culvert.

A detour is required for this project. Traffic will be routed on Yellow Medicine County Roads 1 and 6, as well as Highways 274 and 23.

Benefits of the project include a smoother bridge surface, improved drainage system beneath the road and reduced flood potential.

R and G is the contractor for the project, which is estimated to cost $400,000 and to be complete by mid-July 2019.
