Motorists on Highway 87 between Highway 371 in Backus and Highway 64 may encounter delays while crews resurface the roadway beginning Friday, June 9.

The lane closures will occur from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, and will be complete Thursday, June 15. The schedule is weather dependent.

Flaggers and a pilot car will allow one-way, alternating traffic through each day's work zone. Motorists must obey the flaggers and follow the pilot car through the daily work zone.

Drivers entering a work zone from roads or driveways that intersect Highway 87 must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow it through the work zone.

The closures are needed while crews resurface 12 miles of Highway 87. When complete, the project will provide a smoother ride and help preserve the roadway.
