Highway Construction Around Deerwood Delayed a Week

Minnesota's second season, road construction, is about to begin. The Governor is asking for patience this year because of the number of projects funded with federal stimulus dollars.

The Brainerd Lakes Area won't be as hectic, but we do have a couple of projects that will cause delays. A $2.9 million safety and pavement improvement project that was to begin begin Monday, will be delayed one week to April 20th. The project will be in the Deerwood area. The work will take place on Highway 6 from Highway 18 to Highway 210 in Deerwood and Highway 210 west of Crow Wing County Road 135 in Crosby to Highway 6 in Deerwood.

Crews will resurface the roadway, including shoulders and turn-lanes, repair and replace culverts and construct new turn lanes. All work will be done during daylight hours.

Motorists will encounter single lane closures controlled by a pilot car and flaggers. The pilot car will be used in rural areas only.

Motorists should plan for lane closures and traffic shifts on Highway 210 through the city of Ironton as crews repair sanitary sewer manholes.

Anderson Brothers Construction of Brainerd is the prime contractor.

The entire project is scheduled to be complete by mid-June.
