Highway 19 from Winthrop to Gibbon closure is extended for 2 more weeks

5/26/2022

The detour for Highway 19 from Winthrop to Gibbon will be in place approximately two weeks longer as more extensive repairs are necessary, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.


MnDOT crews diverted water away from the damaged area last week in an effort to make emergency repairs. Based on the discovery of more damage to a culvert, it was determined that more extensive repairs are necessary to the culvert and roadway, including the removal of pavement.
Traffic will continue to be detoured to Highway 15, and Sibley County Roads 25 and 22.
