College Drive construction end in sight


Ongoing since spring 2012 — with discussion and disputes dating to years before that — Brainerd City Engineer Jeff Hulsether on Wednesday said construction on College Drive is on track and nearing its completion.

Hulsether said another transition will be made for motorists beginning Oct. 1, allowing westbound traffic into the west lane and eastbound traffic in the east lane.
