Detour includes mini roundabout in Deerwood

Hwy 210 will close and detour along Hwy 25 Brainerd, Hwy 18 to Hwy 6 Deerwood and Hwy 6/Hwy 210 to Crosby-Ironton. Detour map, PDF

To improve traffic flow and ease congestion on the detour, MnDOT will install a:

  • Temporary mini roundabout at the east intersection of Hwy 6 and Hwy 210, just north of the railroad tracks, in Deerwood. Watch for trains, and stay off railroad tracks.
  • Temporary traffic signal at the "T" intersection of Hwy 25/Mill Ave and the westbound Hwy 210 access connection to Hwy 25 in Brainerd.
  • Hwy 18 bypass lane at the Hwy 6 intersection near Bay Lake.

Local access

Access to businesses and residences to be maintained and open, however expect some changes and gravel surfaces. The road will be temporarily impassable at some locations to complete underground work, seek nearest alternative route. Work area map, PDF
