Segment of Benton County Road 2 in Rice closes Oct. 8
Local businesses remain accessible

 

Baxter, Minn. – Motorists travelling County Road 2/Main Street through Rice will encounter delays as a segment of the road temporarily closes, and an adjacent segment closes intermittently, for two weeks beginning Tuesday, Oct. 8.

 

The closures are scheduled as follows.

 

A signed detour will direct motorists along Highway 10, County Road 31/Division Street and County Road 2/Main Street.

 

The closures are needed as part of the new Highway 10/County Road 2 interchange project. When complete, the project will increase safety and mobility by replacing the current signalized intersection with a full interchange, extend acceleration lanes and improve local roads and utilities.
