The Crow Wing County Highway Department has entered into a contract with Anderson Brothers Construction Co. for bituminous surfacing on County Highway 8 between Peterson Lake Road and County Highway 12.

Construction work was scheduled to begin last week with milling and bituminous surfacing near the railroad crossing. Paving will continue for the remainder of the week and maybe into next week. Shouldering, mailbox supports and pavement markings will take place after mainline paving.

Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car. Expect delays and use caution while traveling through the construction zone.
