Update on detours
Detours on Highway 23 and on Washburne Avenue are now done, but Highway 4/55 east of town continues to be detoured.|
Construction is also progressing on Old Lake Road in Paynesville Township. Soft spots on the road are being dug out and filled. The road, consequently, has three stretches of gravel. Drivers need to be careful around work crews on the road. The west intersection with Highway 55 is closed as it is being redone. The road still needs to be widened. A base course of asphalt will be laid before winter.
The downtown railroad crossing on Washburne Avenue was closed last week so it could be upgraded. The wooden ties were replaced with a concrete bed. Local traffic and truck traffic that uses Washburne Avenue as an alternate route were detoured last week by the work on the crossing. The railroad crossing on County Road 130 was also upgraded, and it still needs to be paved.
Highway 4 & 55 detour
A four-way stop has been added at the intersection of Highway 55, Highway 124, and Co. Rd. 181.
