About this project

Hwy 282 will be reconstructed for a smoother ride between Mill St. and Hwy 13. Additionally, Hwy 282 will be reconstructed between Lydia Rd. and East St. to add a trail, improve safety and slow traffic.

The Hwy 21 bridges over the UP Railroad constructed in 1957 and over Sand Creek were in need of replacement, which brought both bridges up to current standards.
