Road Work on Hwy 371 Pine River
Motorists traveling on Highway 371 from Roy Lake Road in Nisswa to Cass County Road 2/42 in Pine River will encounter lane closures with flaggers and a pilot car operation in rural areas when a road resurfacing project begins April 30. This work will require a one-month detour in Pine River from mid-May through mid-June.
During the detour, southbound traffic will use a detour on Cass County Road 2, to Park Avenue, Mill Street and Ridge Avenue. Northbound traffic will be routed onto Ridge Avenue, First Street and Jefferson Avenue through mid-June while crews replace several culverts.
All work is scheduled to be complete by mid-June, weather permitting. The project was originally scheduled to begin in mid-May, but favorable weather conditions will allow the contractor to start the project early.
Knife River Materials of Bemidji is the prime contractor for this $3.8 million project.
