Concrete paving on a portion of McLeod County Road 15 began this week.
The 300’ gap is located approximately 1.7 miles south of Highway 7 over County Ditch 32, southeast of Silver Lake.
Officials say the road will remain open to thru traffic but drivers will be reduced to one lane and Stop signs are installed to control traffic.
It is advised drivers find an alternate route during the construction.
The work should take approximately 2 weeks to allow for the concrete to cure.
