Barnesville intersection to become four-way stop Oct. 24


DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Motorists traveling on Highway 9 in Barnesville will soon be required to stop at the Highway 34 and Clay County Road 2 intersection, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.


The city of Barnesville and MnDOT are converting the intersection from a two-way stop to a four-way stop to improve safety. Northbound and southbound Highway 9 traffic will be required to stop at the intersection when the work is completed Monday, Oct. 24, weather permitting.


Motorists may encounter crews working at or near the intersection prior to Oct. 24 while they prepare for the conversion. The new stop signs and stop-ahead signs will be enhanced with flashing lights.


MnDOT reminds motorists to slow down and watch for crews working in the area.
