County workers focus on snow removal
Crow Wing County maintenance crews will plow and remove snow throughout the week.
Crews will remove snow Monday, Feb. 25, and Thursday along County Highway 45/13th Street in Brainerd and County Highway 66 in Crosslake.
Snow will also be removed Wednesday from County Highway 20/Riverside Drive in Brainerd and County Highway 39 in Ideal Township.
Crews will remove snow from County Highway 48/West Laurel Street in Brainerd on Wednesday and Thursday.
Crews will also be addressing snow banks along various guardrails and at various
intersections to improve roadway sight distance throughout the week.
Crews will work on one travel lane and shoulder simultaneously, creating a need to close a lane of traffic. Signing, flaggers or portable traffic lights will control traffic flow through these areas.
Crews will be patching potholes on various county roads Thursday. They will pull over and stop frequently on the shoulders of the roads, to perform the patching work. Loose patching material debris may be present.
Maintenance Supervisor Jory Danielson said he anticipates having the snowplows out Tuesday and Friday for the forecast snowfall.
