DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists on Hwy 113 east of Waubun will encounter lane closures beginning Thu, Aug. 3, and a detour starting Mon, Aug. 7, as crews begin work on a culvert project.

Crews will line or replace several culverts along two sections of Hwy 113. All work west of Clearwater Co Rd 39 will be completed without using a detour, but motorists may encounter occasional delays. A detour will be required for several culvert replacements east of Clearwater Co Rd 39.

The detour will direct traffic to Hwy 71, Hwy 200 and Clearwater Co Rd 39. It will remain in place for up to two weeks.

The project will result in improved drainage along Hwy 113.
