BRAINERD — Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street will be open to all traffic beginning Saturday, July 30.

All accesses to and from the highway for the week of the Crow Wing County Fair will be open Aug. 2-6. The road’s intersection with Buffalo Hills Lane/Industrial Park Road will remain an all-way stop.

The portion of the road from Buffalo Hills Lane/Industrial Park Road to south of Greenwood Street will close Aug. 8. The detour will use Highway 371 to Highway 210 in Baxter and back to Business Highway 371. Access will be open and maintained to those who live, work or visit residents, businesses and health care facilities along the work zone; however, expect access changes and gravel surfaces. The west access to Greenwood Street will be closed to realign the intersection.

The Business Highway 371 intersection at Buffalo Hills Lane/Industrial Park Road will remain an all-way stop until fall when the new signal system is operational.

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.
