DETROIT LAKES -- Motorists will experience delays due to detours and lane closures when a resurfacing project begins Monday on Minnesota Highway 7. The $3.9 million project is located between the state Highway 7/U.S. Highway 75 junction just east of Odessa and Appleton.

Highway 7 through traffic will be detoured for approximately four weeks while crews replace pipes along the roadway, mill the roadway's surface and begin paving.

The detour will be Big Stone County Road 21, U.S. Highway 12 and state Highway 119.

After the detour is removed, traffic will be controlled with flaggers and pilot cars guiding motorists through the work zone. Work on the paving project will occur Monday through Friday and some Saturdays, and is scheduled to be completed by the beginning of August, weather permitting.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
