Motorists can expect fewer delays on Highway 9 south of Morris after crews removed the detour between Morris and Benson on June 11.

Crews are currently completing pavement marking and miscellaneous clean-up work that requires short lane closures and shoulder closures.


The project includes resurfacing Highway 9 between Stevens County Road 22 and the Stevens/Pope county line and all of Highway 329. This work increases safety and improves mobility along those corridors.

All work is scheduled to be completed by July 1, weather permitting.
