CASS COUNTY — Motorists can expect periodic lane closures and short-term delays as crews resurface Highway 64 from Highway 210 near Motley to Highway 87 west of Backus in Cass County.

Lane closures will occur during daylight hours, Mondays through noon Fridays, on good weather days until late July.

Motorists should be prepared to slow down or stop. Flaggers will allow alternate one-way traffic with the use of a pilot car through the work zone. The work will be done in segments.

The work zone will change and move each day. Motorists should watch for heavy equipment and workers.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation advises travelers to always slow down when approaching every work zone, then navigate through with care and caution. Other reminders include:


  • Never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
  • Stay alert; work zones constantly change.
  • Watch for workers and slow-moving equipment.
  • Obey posted speed limits; fine for a work zone violation is $300.
  • Minimize distractions behind the wheel.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother road surface and reduced overall maintenance costs.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
