Construction began September 17, 2019 and will be completed by early-November, weather permitting.  Work will include pavement preservation and re-striping for a continuous two-way center left-turn lane (TWLTL). The project will also include minor widening at intersections to maintain existing right-turn lanes.  All work will be done within the existing right-of-way.  

The continuous TWLTL will provide spatial separation between opposing lanes of traffic, reducing head on and sideswipe collisions.  In addition, due to the density of driveways, restriping will also remove left turning vehicles from the through lane; improving flow, road efficiency and reducing rear-end collisions.  

Knife River Corporation of Sauk Rapids, MN will begin the work the week of SEPTEMBER 16, 2019.  A slight change is the entire project will now be constructed with detoured traffic (click here for detour map).   Local traffic will have access to their homes and businesses but may encounter delays as the road is reduced intermittently to a single lane during daytime hours.
