DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists near Morris may encounter brief delays as crews complete a road preservation project starting Monday, Aug. 28.

The seal coat project includes Highway 9 from Morris to Benson and Highway 59 from Morris to the Swift County line.

During this work, a pilot car and flaggers will control traffic, and motorists should plan for daily lane closures in the area where crews are working. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.

Crews will work during daytime hours only.

The project is expected to be complete prior to Labor Day.
