The Crow Wing County Highway Department will begin construction on county highways 9 and 44 Tuesday.

The county has entered into a contract with Anderson Brothers Construction for reclamation and bituminous surfacing the entire length of the roads, a news release stated.

Removal of pavement at centerline culvert replacements will start Tuesday. Culvert removal and replacement operations will begin shortly afterward, starting on County Highway 44 and then County Highway 9. Culvert replacement is expected to take 10 working days.

During the week of July 11, the road will be closed at intervals for more complex culvert installations. The road will be barricaded off and motorists must use alternate routes during this time. Visit the website or call for exact days and locations of the closure.

Reclaim, aggregate base, and paving operations will begin late July or early August. The exact starting location and date has not been determined at this time. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car as needed. Expect delays and use caution while traveling through the construction zone. Weather permitting, all construction activities will be completed by Sept. 2.

"Please plan your daily route accordingly, expect delays, take extra time to drive safely, and respect the equipment and personnel on site," the release stated.
