The closure is necessary for crews to resurface seven miles of roadway and shoulders as well as replace and repair culverts.

Anderson Brothers, of Brainerd, is the prime contractor for the $2.5 million road improvement project. Work should be complete by late June, weather permitting.


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.
