Southbound lanes of Highway 169 project in
Mille Lacs County scheduled to open next week

BAXTER, Minn. - Motorists traveling Highway 169 north of the Rum River Rest Area to just south of Onamia mid-week next week will be using the newly-opened southbound lanes as crews complete the unbonded concrete overlay project.

Motorists should expect periodic lane closures for the removal of the temporary cross overs and temporary widening done along the northbound lanes of Highway 169, as well as the completion of the turf establishment.

This $4.5 million project is one of nearly 100 Minnesota road and bridge projects that will be funded with $502 million in federal economic stimulus dollars.

All work to be completed by mid-August.
