Hwy 27 segment at County Road 47, east of Lastrup, closes July 9

Detour adds one mile to trip

BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists who travel Highway 27 between Lastrup and Onamia will encounter a detour and delays after Highway 27 between Morrison County Road 47 and 350th Avenue/Ranch Road closes Monday, July 9.

Motorists should follow the signed detour along County Road 47 and County Road 23, or plan their own alternate routes.

All lanes of Highway 27 will open in mid-August.

The closure is needed while crews replace the Highway 27 bridge spanning the Skunk River tributary. When complete, the project will replace the existing bridge with a new, lower-maintenance box culvert bridge with wider shoulders and upgraded guardrail. The project will preserve the river tributary crossing, and improve safety and drainage in the area.
