Orange barrels on a highway

Highway 75 resurfacing project south of Moorhead begins Aug. 5

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 75 south of Moorhead will experience lane closures, flaggers, pilot cars and possible delays when a resurfacing project begins Monday, August 5, weather permitting.

The project will extend along Highway 75 from the roundabout at Clay County Road 12 south to the Clay/Wilkin county line.

Different segments of the road will be affected each day.

Flaggers will allow one-way, alternating traffic through the work zone. Drivers must obey the flagger, be prepared to stop and follow the pilot car through the work zone. Motorists entering driveways or roads that intersect with Highway 75 within a work zone must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow it through the work zone.

The road work is expected to be complete by mid-September, weather permitting.

When the project is complete, motorists will notice a smoother ride and improved safety along 12 miles of Highway 75.
