Hwy 371 Road Work Begins Wednesday

It may not seem like it, but the summer construction season is upon us, and motorist on Highway 371 between Baxter and Nisswa will see the effects of it beginning Wednesday.

MnDOT will begin preparations for resurfacing operations on the busy roadway with lane closures and reduced speeds.  The project will also involve constructing shoulders and turn lanes, upgrading traffic signals and closing median crossovers.  MnDOT says the road will be safer with improved mobility when completed.  Access to local business will be maintained.

In an effort to alleviate congestion, crews will be working from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. from the railroad tracks south of Highway 210 to just north of Nisswa.  There will be no construction work during the weekends. 

The $8.4 million dollar project will be completed by Anderson Brothers of Brainerd.  Weather permitting, the work should be complete by mid-August.
