Work resumes on Highway 371 north of Brainerd
Look for work near Brainerd International Raceway into June
BAXTER — Brainerd lakes area travelers may encounter periodic lane closures and minor delays as work was to resume Monday, May 8, on Highway 371, north of Brainerd and east of Gull Lake, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.
Crews returned to pave the west frontage road north of Gull Lake Dam Road, establish turf and complete any other remaining tasks along Highway 371. Work will occur on weekdays.
In 2022, three new intersections were constructed with a J-turn design at Gull Lake Dam Road (County Road 125), Birchdale Road (Brainerd International Raceway main entrance) and Green Gables Road (County Road 126).
Crews also reconstructed and extended both frontage roads along Highway 371; replaced underground pipes and repaired ditch drainage; and resurfaced work areas, including shoulders and entrances.
When complete in June, the $6.8 million project will improve safety, traffic flow and local access on Highway 371.
