Work on the $5.7 million Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street reconstruction project between Highway 210/Washington Street and Joseph Street in Brainerd is now slated to begin Monday, April 30.

Motorists and residents should plan for the following:

April 30 to mid-July

• Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street will close from Joseph Street to Oak Street. A signed detour uses Industrial Park Road, Crow Wing County Highway 45/13th Street and Oak Street. Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street will remain open to cross street traffic at Willow Street or Vine Street.

For the duration of this project, April 30 to mid-October

• Expect periodic lane, access or sidewalk closures along the entire Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street corridor between Highway 210/Washington Street and Joseph Street. For public safety and safety for construction crews, the Minnesota Department of Transportation asks the public to watch for signs and stay out of closed areas.

• A signed truck detour will direct Business Highway 371/South Sixth Street commercial vehicles along Industrial Park Road/County Road 117/Thiesse Road, Highway 25 and Highway 210. The turning radiuses are narrow on the local street detour. MnDOT asks truck drivers to use the truck route whenever possible.

• Access to businesses and homes will be maintained and open at all times. However, expect access changes and gravel surfaces when navigating in work areas. Local residents and businesses with questions may contact Joe Cameron, project manager, at 218-828-5740.

When complete in mid-October 2018, the project will reconstruct and redesign the roadway, upgrade city underground utilities and infrastructure, improve pedestrian accessibility, upgrade signal systems and replace road signs throughout the corridor.
