BRAINERD — Crow Wing County maintenance crews will spray patch throughout the week on County Highway 16 in Jenkins and Ideal Township.

Crews will also continue cleaning up trees and fixing washouts from last month’s storms.

They may be working in the drive lane and on the shoulders simultaneously, creating the need to close one or more lanes of traffic. Signing, flaggers or portable traffic lights will control the traffic flow through these work areas.

County maintenance crews will patch potholes on various county roads from Monday, July 11, through Thursday. Crews will be pulling over and stopping frequently on the shoulders of the roads to perform the patching work. Loose patching material debris may be present.

All maintenance work is weather sensitive and subject to delay or change.

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.
