BRAINERD โ€” Crow Wing County Road 144 will be closed temporarily between Butternut Road in Long Lake Township and County Road 148 (Thompson Road), due to spring flooding, the Crow Wing County Highway Department reported.

The 1-mile road closure is approximately one and one-half miles south of State Highway 18, southeast of Brainerd. The detour route will be County Road 148 (Thompson Road) (5-ton load limit), County Highway 23 (9-ton load limit) and state highways 25 and 18.

The spring snowmelt and runoff is causing water to rise quickly and flood over the road. The road is closed for safety reasons and will reopen after the water recedes and infrastructure assessments are complete.

Driving over, through, or around any barricade, fence, or obstruction erected for the purpose of preventing traffic from passing over a portion of a highway closed to public travel or to remove, deface, or damage any such barricade, fence or obstruction is a misdemeanor under Minnesota Statute.

Visit the countyโ€™s website at https://www.crowwing.gov/ or call the county highway department at 218-824-1110 for additional information or with any questions.

Headline News from the Brainerd Dispatch

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.
