Highway 75/210 intersection to become a four-way stop Aug. 13

 

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Motorists traveling on Highway 75 in Breckenridge will soon be required to stop at the north Highway 210 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 Monday, Aug. 13, weather permitting.

 

Motorists may encounter crews working at or near the intersection prior to Aug. 13 while they prepare for the conversion. Crews will add pavement messages 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.

 

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.
