Kragnes intersection to become four-way stop Feb. 15

 

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Motorists traveling on Highway 75 north of Moorhead will soon be required to stop at the Clay County Road 26 intersection, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

 

MnDOT is converting the intersection from a two-way stop to a four-way stop to improve safety. Northbound and southbound Highway 75 traffic will be required to stop at the intersection when the work is completed Wednesday, Feb. 15, weather permitting.

 

Motorists may encounter crews working at or near the intersection prior to Feb. 15 while they prepare for the conversion. Crews will add rumble strips to Highway 75 and the new stop signs and stop-ahead signs will be enhanced with flashing lights. Temporary message boards ahead of the intersection also will alert motorists while they become accustomed to the change.

 

MnDOT crews will add pavement markings to Highway 75 at a later date as weather permits.
