Highway 27 project in Little Falls begins Monday

BAXTER — Motorists will encounter a road closure at the BNSF Railway tracks on Highway 27/Broadway Avenue in Little Falls when a track repair project begins at 6 a.m. Monday.

Traffic will be detoured on Highway 27 to Paul Larson Drive, Ninth Avenue, Lindbergh Drive and back to Highway 27. Temporary four-way stop signs will be placed at Paul Larson Drive, Ninth Avenue and Lindbergh Drive.

During construction and road maintenance work, the Minnesota Department of Transportation urges drivers to:

• Never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
