Hwy 371 resurfacing project Nisswa to Pine River
BAXTER, Minn. — 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 to the end of 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-May while crews replace several culverts. To view the detour, visit www.dot.state.mn.us/d3/newsrels/12/detours/Hwy371_pineriver_detour_2012.pdf
All work is scheduled to be complete by the end of June, weather permitting. The project was originally to be completed by mid June, but due to the recently heavy rains received work has been delayed.
Knife River Materials of Bemidji is the prime contractor for this $3.8 million project.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For statewide travel information, visit www.511mn.org, call 5-1-1 or log on to www.mndot.gov.
