Plus sidewalk replacement, landscaping and ADA pedestrian ramps will also be upgraded. The stretch of Hwy 56 in Adams from First Street and Fourth Street will be closed while the roadway is reconstructed.
The detour route for eastbound Hwy 56 motorists will be:
* Mower County Road 18 south to Mower County Road 6 east and connect back with Hwy 56 east of Le Roy
