All lanes and sidewalks open on Hwy 27 in Little Falls

BAXTER, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation is excited to announce all lanes and sidewalks will be open on Highway 27 in Little Falls by noon Friday, Oct. 25.

The detours on Highway 27 have been in place since April. Motorists who travel through the area are reminded it takes a full day to open the road and remove temporary detour signs and barricades.

The $7.6 million improvement project reconstructed or resurfaced two miles of Highway 27 between 15th Street W and Ninth Street E, installed new underground city utilities, curb, gutter and sidewalks, improved signals and adjacent entrance connections.

MnDOT thanks the local community for their patience during this improvement project.
