Bridges open to local traffic at the Little Ann River and Ann Lake bridges. However, expect road operations to pick-up on the south end of the Hwy 47 project, as trucks can now haul materials through the open area.
Detour through October

Local work zone
Open, expect changes
Hwy 47 is open to those who live, work or visit a resident or business along the closed road. However, some work requires hard closures. Expect changes to access, gravel surfaces, reduced speeds, flaggers and a pilot car. Try to enter/exit the work zone nearest to you.
Project remains on schedule
Little Ann River bridge between Co. Rd. 26 and 265th Ave.

Through October: Reconstuct/reclaim the road surface. Expect delays, flaggers, pilot car, alternate one-way traffic between Hwy 27/395th St., south of Isle to Hwy 23 in Ogilvie.
