The Highway 210 construction project continues in Brainerd.
This week crews removed existing curb and gutter and sidewalks in the segment between the Mississippi River Bridge and South Sixth Street/Business 371. Additional work included rebuilding the drainage catch basins and installing lighting standards, and reinstalled curb and gutter between the Mississippi River Bridge and South Sixth Street.
Next week through Friday, crews will complete the remaining light standard installations and begin work on sidewalks in this segment, weather permitting. Additional work includes the installation of loop detectors to control traffic signal operations on side streets in the work zone. Paving operations in the segment between the Mississippi River Bridge and South Sixth Street are expected to be completed in early June. All work progress is based on good weather conditions, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.
Traffic will remain single lane in each direction between the Mississippi River Bridge and South Sixth Street until about noon Friday when crews will suspend construction operations for the Memorial Day holiday weekend and all four lanes will be open.
On May 29, crews will begin working on the second segment of the project between SE 13th Street/Crow Wing County Road 45 and the southbound leg of Highway 25, said Paul Koenig, MnDOT project supervisor. Each segment is expected to take about two to three weeks to complete.
Weather permitting, the entire project is expected to be complete by Labor Day.
