Detours on Hwy 75 and Hwy 212 begin April 30

 

WILLMAR, Minn. – Motorists on Hwy 75 and Hwy 212 near Dawson and Montevideo will encounter delays and detours beginning Monday, April 30, as crews begin a road resurfacing project. 

 

Hwy 75 traffic will detour on Lac Qui Parle County Road 2, Lac Qui Parle County Road 23, Lac Qui Parle County Road 25 and State Hwy 40.

 

Hwy 212 traffic near Dawson will detour on Lac Qui Parle County Road 7, Hwy 40 and Lac Qui Parle 25.

 

Hwy 212 traffic near Montevideo will detour on Hwy 275, Lac Qui Parle County Road 2 and Yellow Medicine County Road 5.

 

The detours will allow crews to resurface deteriorated segments of Hwy 212 and Hwy 75 more quickly. Crews will remove the detours in September, weather permitting.

 

Motorists will experience a smoother and safer road surface when the project is complete.

 

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slowdown 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.
