Highway 67 detour to begin Thursday south of Granite Falls, Minn.

WILLMAR -- Motorists will encounter a detour on Minnesota Highway 67 from Minnesota Highway 23 to the Yellow Medicine River Bridge beginning Thursday as crews resurface the road.

The 8-mile project requires a detour using Highway 23, Highway 274 and Yellow Medicine County Road 18. Original start date of August 3 was changed due to weather delays on another project.

When the project is complete, motorists will experience a smoother, safer road.

Central Specialties is the prime contractor for the $2.6 million project, which is scheduled for completion in late October, weather permitting. Funding for the project is provided by the Upper Sioux Community.
