Lane closures on Hwy 371 between Nisswa and Brainerd for micro-surfacing project

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists who drive on Highway 371 between Nisswa and Brainerd could experience delays as crews begin a micro-surface project along nine miles of the highway on Monday, Sept. 9.

There will be alternate lane closures on both directions of Highway 371 between Crow Wing County Roads 77/49 in Brainerd and Smiley Road in Nisswa for the duration of the project.

Crews will work Monday through Saturday, on good weather days, from sunrise to sunset. All lanes will be open by Sept. 30. Micro-surface helps extend the life of the road and provide a smoother ride.

Motorists are asked to drive with caution through the work zone and watch for workers, traffic control and equipment.
