Bridge replacement project, detour in Ortonville begin June 4

 

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. —Motorists on Highway 12 in Ortonville will experience delays and a detour when a bridge replacement project begins Monday, June 4, over the Minnesota River.

 

Traffic will use a detour on Cornell Avenue and Dike Road in Big Stone City, S.D., and Big Stone County Road 30, First Street and Highway 7 in Ortonville. A map of the detour is available at www.dot.state.mn.us/d4/images/0602-24_hwy12_detour.pdf.

 

Work is scheduled to be complete in mid-August, weather permitting.

 

The new bridge will improve safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians, and will be wider with a separate multimodal lane.

 

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 www.511mn.org, call 5-1-1 or log on to www.mndot.gov.
