Open house for future Hwy 87 projects in Frazee scheduled for May 7

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is hosting an open house on Tuesday, May 7 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., with a presentation at 5:30 p.m., to discuss two upcoming projects on Highway 87. The open house will be held at the Frazee Event Center, 114 N. Lake St.

The rural Highway 87 tree-clearing project is scheduled for the winter 2020/2021 season. It will include removing all trees and vegetation that’s 65 feet from both sides of the center of Highway 87 from Frazee to Menagha.

In the summer of 2021, MnDOT will resurface Highway 87 from North River Drive in Frazee to the east Becker County line. Full span bridges will replace box culverts over the Otter Tail River and Toad River.

The urban Highway 87 project is scheduled for the 2022 construction season. It includes roadway resurfacing, ADA improvements, shared-use path construction and city utility replacements from south of the Highway 10 interchange to North River Drive in Frazee.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to attend to learn more about the project. Representatives from the project team will be available to discuss details and answer questions.
