A Cass County road improvement project for County State Aid Highways 1 and 44 east of Pine River was to start Tuesday, Sept. 8.

This project includes reclaiming and paving the entire road from Minnesota Trunk Highway 84 in Pine River to the Cass County line. It will also include the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of CSAHs 1 and 44.

At the intersection, traffic will only be allowed to use the westbound to northbound and southbound to eastbound turning movements during the first stage of construction. The second stage will require a complete closure sometime in October to complete the roundabout. The detour will include Crow Wing County CSAH 15, TH 84 and TH 371.

Crews will maintain the full closure no longer than necessary to complete the roundabout construction.

This project is being led by Bolton and Menk, in cooperation with Cass County. For more information, contact the project engineer from Bolton and Menk, Ryan Johnson, at ryan.johnson@bolton-menk.com or 952-426-8335.
