Lane closures on Highway 71, Highway 210
and Highway 10 begin Sept. 25
Baxter, Minn. – Motorists may encounter daytime delays on several Central Minnesota highways beginning Wednesday, Sept. 25 as crews begin to seal cracks in the pavement ahead of this winter’s freeze/thaw cycle.
The closures will occur on the following roadways.
- Highway 71 from Menahga to Wadena will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers and a pilot car allowing one-way, alternating traffic through the daily work zones beginning Wednesday, Sept. 25.
- After the work on Highway 71 is complete, Highway 210 from Staples to Hewitt will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers and a pilot car allowing one-way, alternating traffic through the daily work zones.
- After the work on Highway 210 is complete, both directions of Highway 10 from Rice to Cushing will be intermittently reduced to a single lane.
Drivers should slow down and be prepared to stop as they approach the daily work zones. On two-lane roads, drivers must obey the flaggers and follow the pilot car through each work zone.
All work to be complete by mid-October.
The sealing will help extend the life of the road’s pavement.
