Highway 210 road work planned from Hewitt to Staples
Motorists should plan for delays in early May as road work gets underway on a 15-mile stretch of Highway 210, from Wisconsin Avenue east of Hewitt to Dakota Avenue in Staples in Todd County.
This season's work includes:
• Mill and overlay a new blacktop road surface, including shoulders and turn lanes.
• Repair culverts.
• Construct a new right turn lane at 193rd Avenue, six miles east of Hewitt.
• Construct a westbound right turn lane at Todd County Highway 21, west of Staples.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane through the work zone, controlled by a pilot car and flaggers. All work will be done during daylight hours.
Widseth Smith Nolting of Baxter is administering the construction contract for this $2.3 million pavement preservation and safety improvement project. Anderson Brothers Construction of Brainerd is the prime contractor.
Work is expected to be complete by the end of June, weather permitting.
