Hwy 269 near Jasper to close for traffic signal maintenance

WILLMAR, Minn. –   Highway 269 (in both directions) near Jasper will be closed and the road will be detoured August 24 to August 28 for traffic signal maintenance.  BNSF will be working at the railroad crossing.  The detour will take motorists north on 30th Ave/CR 13 and then east on 41st St.

The project is anticipated to be complete and the road opened by the end of the day August 28, 2016.
