Hwy 210 reduced to one lane at bridge in Brainerd April 26–28

BAXTER, Minn. — Those who cross the Highway 210/Washington Street bridge over the Mississippi River in Brainerd will encounter heavy equipment, crews and daytime delays, as eastbound is reduced to a one lane of traffic Monday through Wednesday, April 26–28.

The lane closure will occur 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day on eastbound Highway 210 between the signalized intersections of Northwest Fourth Street and Fourth Street in Brainerd. MnDOT crews will conduct a bridge inspection and study. Pedestrians may also encounter sidewalk closures, follow signs.

Motorists approaching the daytime work zones should slow down, be prepared to stop if necessary, and move over within the work zone as appropriate to give crews a safe space to work.

Northwest Fourth Street closes north of Highway 210

On Monday, April 26 Northwest Fourth Street, which changes into Riverside Drive/Crow Wing County Road 20, will close to through traffic between Highway 210/Washington Street and Beaver Dam Road, as the city of Brainerd reconstructs the road and installs a roundabout at Jackson Street. Travelers should be alert to roadwork signage and expect to see access changes at the signalized Highway 210/Washington Street and Northwest Fourth Street intersection through mid-June.
