MnDOT closing portion of Highway 60 with shorter bypass

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is closing a portion of Highway 60/71 in Windom due to standing water along Seventh Street.

Vehicle traffic through the water was creating a wake, potentially harming businesses in the area.

As a result, traffic is being detoured around the standing water, which will include a detour through a residential neighborhood.

From the south, traffic on the highway will detour up Sixth Street to the east, then take Lakeview Avenue before turning west on 16th Street to return to the highway. From the north, traffic will turn east on 16th Street, take Lakeview Avenue and turn west on Sixth Street to return to the highway.
