Motorists who travel Highway 371 between Brainerd and Nisswa will encounter slow or stopped traffic when the road is reduced to a single lane, and flaggers control traffic at various locations, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday.

The lane closures are needed to accommodate the increased traffic and shuttle buses for the annual Jaycees $150,000 Ice Fishing Extravaganza on Hole-in-the-Day Bay on Gull Lake.

Fishing contest participants and spectators are encouraged to use the two shuttle bus service locations. The shuttle services are at Brainerd International Raceway, just north of Baxter, and at the temporary parking lot at Highway 371 and the north junction of Crow Wing County Road 77 in Nisswa. The buses will run from 8 a.m. to about 5 p.m.

The Minnesota State Patrol will provide increased patrols and DWI enforcement to support local law enforcement agencies throughout the event.

Motorists are urged to slow down, use caution and be prepared to stop as they navigate the area.
