BRAINERD — Crow Wing County has entered into a contract with Borden Excavating for the reconstruction of County Road 115, also known as Ojibwa and Nashway roads around Round lake.

The project consists of storm sewer, curb and gutter, and roadway reconstruction. Utility relocations have been on-going this spring. The road construction is scheduled to begin on Wednesday, May 3 Starting on that date, County Road 115 will be closed to through traffic and a detour will be in place. The contractor will begin operations near the public boat landing on Ojibwa Road and proceed east. The work zone locations will be impassable during the day. Each night, the contractor will leave the road passable for local traffic. The overall schedule is subject to variability based upon weather and other factors. Motorists should use caution when traveling near the construction zone.

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.
