One of the busiest highways in the county will have a needed upgrade this summer.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Cottonwood County Commissioners approved a bid from Duininck, Inc., in Prinsburg, to upgrade a 14-mile stretch of County Road 2, running from Highway 60 north to County Road 10.
The bid for the project was approved at a cost of roughly $2.925 million.
County Highway Engineer Nick Klisch noted that the southern 10 miles of the project will add additional pavement strength, while the northern four miles of the project will have a two-inch mill and two-inch overlay.
Work will likely begin in June and continue through July, as Duininck also is slated for the Highway 14 project from Sanborn Corner to Springfield.
More on Tuesday’s meeting appears in the April 20 print and e-editions of the Citizen.
