Temporary detour for Highway 71 roundabout starting Monday

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says a three-day detour is planned as crews start repair work on the Highway 71 roundabout at Anne Street constructed last summer.

According to a release, the detour will guide some motorists onto Fern Street and Technology Drive.

Crews will repair a section of concrete on the northwestern side of the intersection starting Monday.

As always, use caution while driving in and around work zones.
