Highway Department Has Update on CSAH 30 Project in Delano

A message from Virgil Hawkins, Wright County Highway Engineer

Work on Highway 30 is on track to be completed for the season by mid-October (weather permitting). The Highway 30 Project is a collaborative effort between the county and city with both agencies sharing in the cost of the improvements. The project is a City of Delano contract with construction administration and inspection by the city's engineering firm, Wenck, Inc. of Maple Plain, MN. The prime contractor for this project is GMH Asphalt Corporation out of Chaska, MN. A traffic detour has been in place since May for this section of highway 30. Local traffic for those who live along this portion of CSAH 30 will be coordinated and maintained during construction.

Remaining work that is scheduled to be completed in the next couple of weeks (by mid-October, 2020) includes, but is not limited to the following:  

  • Concrete flat-work

  • Class 5 aggregate base fine grading (in preparation for paving)

  • Placement of asphalt bituminous base course 

  • Painting temporary pavement markings

  • Installation of traffic signs

  • Removal of detour signing - open highway to traffic

  • Seeding/restoration & cleanup

    The final lift of bituminous pavement and final pavement markings will take place in 2021, with final completion by June 30, 2021. The project improvements include reconstructing and widening the 2-lane rural section and construct a roundabout at the intersection of CSAH 30 and McKinley Parkway/Davidson Avenue. Replacement of culvert crossings and additional storm sewer, as well as sanitary sewer and watermain utility extensions.

    Project information, such as contact list, detour route, the project schedule, or to get signed up for weekly updates is provided on the Delano City website at  If you need assistance getting signed up for the weekly updates, please contact Delano City Clerk Paula Bauman at

    Questions or concerns regarding the project can be directed towards Shawn Louwagie, Delano City Engineer @ 763-479-4274 or by email at On behalf of Wright County and the City of Delano, we greatly appreciate your patience during the construction process.
