Highway 59 detour lifted south of I-94

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists can now travel on Highway 59 between Interstate 94 and Elbow Lake.

Crews have lifted the detour, however, work will continue in the construction zone.

Motorists will encounter occasional lane closures and shoulder work until the resurfacing project is complete in mid-July, weather permitting.

The work will result in a smoother, safer ride along 16 miles of Highway 59.
