DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Starting Friday, Aug. 11, weather permitting, motorists traveling on Highway 34 near Barnesville will encounter periodic stops and long delays with flaggers at the Highway 34 and Highway 9 intersection in Barnesville, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Crews will begin paving the first phase of the Highway 9 reconstruction project, from Main Avenue through the Highway 34 intersection. Flaggers will direct traffic, which may be stopped for up to 15 minutes during paving. The work is expected to take approximately two days to complete.
