Highway 9 detour lifted east of Benson

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists can now travel on Highway 9 between Benson and Highway 104.

Crews have lifted the detour, but work will continue within the construction zone.

Motorists will encounter occasional lane closures and shoulder work until the project is complete in early October, weather permitting.

The work will result in a smoother, safer ride along Highway 9.
