Hwy 87

Frazee to the Becker/Wadena county line

Upcoming traffic impacts

Highway 87 is reduced to one lane near the Toad River. Obey the stop and take-turns signs and travel with caution, as heavy equipment is staged in the ditch.

The lane closure is part of an effort from the Minnesota Department of Transportation to seal an artesian well that’s located on MnDOT right of way along Highway 87 near Toad River.
