This is just one of several road projects happening this summer.

City officials say the 19th Avenue South Improvement Project will begin later this month. The project includes widening 19th Avenue South from County Road 4 to the roundabout at 6th Street South, adding left-turn lanes, a bike trail, sewer/water improvements and lowering a hill that is a current safety concern.

The city says there were some delays in the project, but it's expected to wrap up early next spring.

Finally the new road construction project connecting the Central Minnesota Healthcare Hub to Pinecone Marketplace is currently underway. That project is expected to wrap up this winter.

Driver's are asked to follow the detours at all construction sites.
