BRAINERD- Motorists who drive on Highway 371 between Nisswa and Brainerd could experience delays as crews begin a micro-surface project along nine miles of the highway.
There will be alternate lane closures on both directions of Highway 371 between Crow Wing County Highways 77 and 49 in Brainerd and Smiley Road in Nisswa for the duration of the project, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.
Crews started work on Monday, and will continue through Saturday, on good weather days, from sunrise to sunset. All lanes will be open by September 30. Micro-surface helps extend the life of the road and provide a smoother ride.
Motorists are asked to drive with caution through the work zone and watch for workers, traffic control and equipment.
