The resurfacing of Highway 15 from County Road 115 (Airport Rd) to Fifth Avenue South in Hutchinson starts today (Wednesday). Travelers will encounter temporary lane and side street closures during paving operations which are scheduled to take two weeks.
A flagging operation will direct traffic through the work zone and delays can be expected. Consider alternate routes when possible.
The resurfacing is part of the Hutchinson Main Street project which includes the reconstruction of Highway 15 from Second Avenue North to Fifth Avenue South. Also included with the project, a northbound left-turn lane will be constructed at Linden Avenue. Sidewalks and pedestrian crossings are being updated along both project areas to make them accessible for all people.
The city of Hutchinson has replaced utilities (sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and water) in downtown Hutchinson under Highway 15 during the reconstruction of Main Street.
