Hwy 59 roundabout construction to begin

Motorists on Highway 59 in Detroit Lakes will experience possible delays when a roundabout construction project at Willow Street and Long Lake Road begins Monday, May 12, weather permitting.

Long Lake Road will close between Highway 59 and Longview Drive beginning May 12. Motorists will need to use an alternate route.

Willow Street will close after Long Lake Road reopens in mid-June.

Landwehr Construction, Inc., of St. Cloud is the prime contractor for the $1.7 million project. Work is scheduled to be complete by late July, weather permitting.
