Highway 9 south of Highway 2 and Polk/Norman county line opens to traffic

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has removed the Highway 9 detour between U.S. Highway 2 and the Polk/Norman county line after crews replaced several box culverts.

Resurfacing and shoulder work will be conducted under traffic with the use of flaggers and a pilot car.

Motorists are reminded to allow for extra travel time through the work zone.

The project was scheduled to be completed in early August, but due to the state government shutdown, the estimated completion date is now Sept. 30.
