BAXTER — The business access intersection from Edgewood Drive to Highway 371 will be closed and under construction starting 7 p.m. Monday, July 25, in Baxter.

The area affected by the closure is between Excelsior Road and Clearwater Road. The intersection being worked on is directly across Highway 371 from Design Road. Due to the closure, the left turn lanes off Highway 371 will be closed.

The closure is anticipated to last through next week and a detour will be in place, the city of Baxter reported. The intersection will be completely closed off and unavailable for through traffic.

Some stores and restaurants directly affected by the closure include: Cub Foods, Cash Wise Liquor, Taco Bell, Caribou Coffee, and many more.

The detour will require motorists to access businesses from Excelsior Road.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
