Highway 75 roundabout project begins Aug. 1


DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 75 south of Moorhead will experience delays when a roundabout construction project at Clay County Road 12 begins Aug. 1.


Traffic will be detoured using 40th Avenue South, 40th Street South, Clay County Road 52, Clay County Road 11 and Clay County Road 8.


Crews will construct a roundabout to improve traffic safety at the intersection of Highway 75 and Clay County Road 12/60th Avenue South. Other work includes constructing snow berms to minimize drifting snow in the roundabout and resurfacing Clay County Road 12/60th Avenue South between the Red River and Highway 75.


The project is a partnership between the Minnesota Department of Transportation and Clay County. It was originally scheduled to begin in June but has been delayed due to wet soil conditions and the state government shutdown.


Construction is scheduled to be completed in late September.


The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For statewide travel information visit, call 5-1-1 or log on to
