Orange barrels on a highway

Hwy 169 Aitkin to Hill City lanes close intermittently June 20-24

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists may encounter delays on Highway 169 between Aitkin and Hill City as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, June 20.

The closures are needed while crews repair and resurface the roadway.

Flaggers will allow one-way, alternating through the work zone. Motorists should slow down and prepare to stop as they approach the work zone, and must obey flaggers and signs as they navigate any work zone.

The work and lane closures will be complete by 4 p.m. Friday, June 24.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride and extend the life of the pavement.
