Motorists may still encounter shoulder closures and lane closures along Highway 9 after the road is open as crews finish clean-up work and install edge line striping.

The project includes milling and paving, replacing culverts and replacing an approach panel at the Chippewa River bridge in Benson. A bypass lane was also added to Highway 12 at Pope County Road 3 west of Benson.

Duininck Bros. Inc. is the contractor for the $3.3 million project, which began May 11.
