Bridge replacement project in Starbuck begins Aug. 20
DETROIT LAKES -- Motorists on Highway 29 in Starbuck will experience delays when a bridge replacement project begins Monday, Aug. 20, over Outlet Creek.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane at the bridge. Temporary stoplights will be placed at the construction site to control traffic during the project.
Crews will reconstruct the northbound side of the bridge before reconstructing the southbound side.
Work is scheduled to be complete in mid-November, weather permitting.
The new bridge will improve safety for motorists, bicyclists and pedestrians with the addition of a 10-foot wide multi-use trail.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For statewide travel information, visit www.511mn.org, call 5-1-1 or log on to www.mndot.gov.
