Hwy 53 intersection improvements in Virginia start July 25

Construction on the intersection of Hwy 53 and P&H Road in Virginia near Komatsu Mining will begin on July 25. According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), the work will improve safety for vehicles turning onto P&H Road and allow better access for oversize vehicles.

MnDOT says the right lane of southbound Hwy 53 will be closed from July 25 to July 29, then on Monday, August 1 crews will shift to the northbound lane. The right lane, right turn lane, and P&H Road will be closed as crews continue the project.
