Segments of Highway 287 from Long Prairie to Grey Eagle reduced to single lane June 19-30

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists will encounter daytime delays on Highway 287 between Long Prairie and Grey Eagle as segments of the road are reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, June 19.

The lane closures will occur from sunrise to sunset, and will be complete by the end of June.

Flaggers and a pilot car will allow one-way, alternating traffic through the daily work zone. Motorists approaching the work zone must slow down and be prepared to stop, obey the flagger, and follow the pilot car through the work zone.

Motorists entering a work zone from driveways or roads that intersect Highway 287 must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow it through the work zone.

The closures are needed while crews resurface Highway 287 between County Road 12 in Long Prairie and Highway 28 in Grey Eagle. The project will provide a smoother ride and preserve the roadway.

Orange Cones. No Phones.
