Open forum: Super work on 77


I live along County No. 77, where construction has been underway since May 1. The construction company is Anderson Bros. of Brainerd. I had an appointment at 7 a.m. Wednesday morning and they were at work at the 371 stoplight. At 8:30, when I returned, I had to wait to join the one-way route back to my home. I observed a class act of workmen and women, in a very efficient manner, with more trucks and equipment I thought imaginable, moving down the road at an unbelievable pace.
