Construction on Highway 200 is tentatively scheduled to begin May 16. In addition to addressing existing pavement concerns, the project also includes shoulder widening, bridge construction, culvert replacement, turn lanes, and other safety and pedestrian accessibility improvements.
Five major Detroit Lakes roadways are primed for extended closures during the 2022 road construction season. Portions of Willow Street, Frazee, Street, West Lake Drive, Holmes Street and Highland Drive are all expected to be closed at some point.
Becker County has agreed to the settlement; the 13 property owners still have to sign off on what are in effect their own individual agreements, and there are still two property holders continuing to hold out against the project.
This whole tree-clearing plan needs to be shelved. And as soon as possible, new special roadway standards need to be put in place to protect special areas like the Lake Country Scenic Byway.
