MANKATO, Minn. – The first year of a major reconstruction on Highways 5, 19 and 22 in Gaylord is wrapping up and the detours are expected to be removed late on Monday, Oct. 6, weather permitting.

In 2015 the project centers on the business section including Highway 5 and Highway 22 to the south. In addition to utilities, sidewalks and roadway, the project includes new lighting, benches, bike racks and planters.

Work on the project includes grading, paving, installing utilities, lighting, landscaping, replacing sidewalk and improving pedestrian accessibility on Highways 5, 19 and 22 in the city of Gaylord.

Detour maps, background information and weekly updates will continue to be posted on Gaylord’s city website at exploregaylord.org/.
Wm. Mueller & Sons of Hamburg has been awarded the contract for $10,167,451.
