ST. CLOUD, Minn. –¬† Motorists will experience a traffic switch with two-way traffic on northbound Highway 169 north of the Rum River Rest Area to just south of Onamia beginning Monday, July 6, as the Minnesota Department of Transportation resurfaces the southbound lanes of Highway 169.

The traffic switch, originally schedule for Monday, June 15, has been delayed in an effort to accommodate motorists traveling  on Highway 169 during the holiday.

Motorists are asked to slow down and use caution in the area where crews are working and be alert for trucks hauling materials in the work zone.

This $4.5 million project is one of nearly 100 Minnesota road and bridge projects that will be funded with $502 million in federal economic stimulus dollars.

All work to be completed by mid-August.
