HWY 59 is 8 miles west of my backyard. I have been on 59 south to Iowa border and as far north as Detroit Lakes. It is mostly 2 lanes that does have some 4 lane. There are places to camp along the way. I live north of Marshall, MN. If you want more information just ask. Jim

I drive 59 in Detroit Lakes, MN every week (currently under construction). Never looked to see how far it goes north and south. Sounds like a nice trip.

Since US 59 runs the entire length of MN, you can run it all the way from the MN/IA border to the MN/Canadian border. Here is construction projects on US 59 in MN right now. Overall, US 59 is a fairly decent road.

1. US 59 in both directions: Water main work. share
Between MN 60 and Nobles County Road 35 (near Worthington). Water main work is in progress. The roadway is reduced to one lane. There is a width limit in effect. Width limit 12'0". Until August 28.

Comment: City of Worthington water main project along Oxford Street from Jct. Hwy 59 & Humiston Ave. and east one block to Burlington Ave.; 12 ft. width restriction at Oxford Street. Work doesn't affect any of the 3 roundabouts east side of Worthington.

3. US 59 in both directions: Bridge construction. share
Between Becker County Road 6 and US 10 (near Detroit Lakes). Bridge construction work is in progress. Road construction work is in progress. There is a width limit in effect. Width limit 11'0". Until October 16.

That is all the construction projects I could find on US 59 in MN from the IA border to the Canadian border. :doorag:
