Daytime lane closures planned on area highways

Includes roads in Aitkin, Mille Lacs, Crow Wing, Morrison and Kanabec counties


BAXTER, Minn. — Motorists will encounter delays, flaggers and pilot cars on area highways in central Minnesota beginning Monday, Aug. 19, as crews resurface sections of roadway.


The road will be intermittently reduced to a single lane with flaggers and a pilot car controlling traffic through the work zone.

The closures will occur from sunrise to sunset on the following roads:

Motorists must slow down, be prepared to stop, obey the flaggers and follow the pilot car through the work zone. Those entering from intersecting driveways or roads within a work zone must wait for the pilot car to pass, and then follow it through the area.


These applied road treatments will extend the life of the roadway and make for a smoother ride.


Work will be complete by Oct. 1, 2013.
