Motorists should follow the signed detours using County Road 112 or County Road 145, or seek alternate routes, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said in a news release. All businesses in Jenkins will remain accessible throughout the detour.

The short segment of Highway 16 is scheduled to open by May 12.

The temporary closure is needed while crews reconstruct the .1 miles of County Road 16, the Highway 371/County Road 16 intersection, and construct a new, safer access route to the frontage road along Highway 371 in Jenkins, the release said.

The work and closures are part of the Highway 371 four-lane expansion project in Nisswa, Pequot Lakes and Jenkins. Visit www.mndot.gov/d3/hwy371/ for more project information or to sign up for this project's email updates.
