An upcoming project on Southeast 13th Street will result in different detours as crews work on the project.
Crow Wing County is partnering with the city of Brainerd and has entered into a contract with Tri-City Paving for construction work consisting of underground utilities, grading, aggregate base and bituminous surfacing on Southeast 13th Street. Major underground utilities and grading will be limited to isolated road and alley crossings.
Southeast 13th Street from Thiesse Road to Washington Street will be under construction starting April 4 and the project will be completed in phases. The first detour phase will close Southeast 13th Street from Oak to Washington streets. The detour route will use Oak and Eighth streets.
Access to the Northern Pacific Center will be from Washington Street at first. Access will be from Oak Street to the Northern Pacific Center on the second half of the first phase detour. Follow the Northern Pacific Center business detour signs. This detour will last until about the middle of May.
The detour's second phase will close Southeast 13th Street from Willow to Oak streets and will use Willow, Broadway and Eighth streets. Follow the Erickson Greenhouse business detour signs to access the business off 12th Street. This detour will last from the middle of May to the middle of June.
Timing of the project will be contingent on weather and the project's conditions. Coordination will be ongoing to update emergency management personnel, local law enforcement and residents on the conditions of the road as construction progresses.
