Portion of Hwy 9 near Barnesville to temporarily close for bridge maintenance the week of Aug. 22

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.—Starting Monday, Aug. 22, until Thursday, Aug. 25, motorists will encounter a temporary closure and detour of Highway 9, as bridge crews complete repairs and scheduled maintenance on the Interstate 94 overpass bridge.

During the closure, the I-94 entrance and exit ramps will remain open, but the roadway between the ramps will be closed to all traffic. Those traveling north or south on Highway 9 will be detoured to the nearest interchange along I-94.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, and reminds them to slow down in the work zone and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
