BRAINERD — Crow Wing County maintenance crews will spray patch County Road 170 (Mapleton Road) in Baxter on Monday, Sept. 26, and County Highway 77 (Pine Beach Road) west of Baxter on Tuesday through Friday.

County maintenance crews will perform all-terrain vehicle and storm washout repairs throughout the week on various county roads.

They may be working simultaneously in the drive lane and on the shoulders, 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 also patch potholes Tuesday on various county roads. They will be pulling over and frequently stopping on the shoulders of the roads to perform the patching work. Loose patching material debris may be present.

Crews will continue mowing operations on various county roads through October.


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.

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.
