Road resurfacing provides a smoother, safer ride. Vehicle traffic and seasonal weather wear down the driving surface over time. Resurfacing helps extend the overall service life of the road and typically occurs when the driving surface is in disrepair and routine preventative maintenance like patching is no longer effective. Pavement resurfacing consists of applying a new top layer to the existing driving surface. Materials used vary from road to road and consider several factors, including cost, construction schedule and the volume of traffic using the newly-paved road.

The following county highways will be resurfaced in 2019:

  • Highway 32 from Highway 30 to Highway 10
  • Highway 92 from Highway 5 to Highway 155
  • Highway 133 from Highway 20 to Wright County
  • Highway 20 from McLeod County to Highway 25

Current Traffic Impacts

Highway 133 expect flaggers.
Highway 20 closure between McLeod County to Highway 25.
Signed detour will be posted.

What to Expect

A thin layer of highway pavement will be ground off to improve the pavement smoothness, and a thin layer of asphalt pavement will be placed on top. Gravel will be added to the shoulders and new pavement markings will be installed.

Community Impacts

Highways 32, 92, 133
