Portion of College Drive closed June 28

Anderson Brothers Construction Company of Brainerd has informed the city of Brainerd that beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday a portion of the College Drive improvement will necessitate a one-day closure of College Drive from the intersection of East River Road to Southwest Fourth Street in the area of the Mississippi River. The closure is expected to go in to the late night hours and will facilitate the installation of an underground storm sewer connection to the pond west of the Mississippi River.

Motorists will be rerouted around the construction zone along East River Road, the Laurel Street Bridge and then back to College Drive on Southwest Fourth Street. Residents of Brian Lane will have access to Brian Lane off of College Drive coming from Southwest Fourth Street.

Additional information is available by accessing the website at or by contacting Ron Bray, project engineer, at (612) 360-1280 or Bryon Amo, project inspector, at (320) 420-1255.
