The temporary closures were scheduled to begin Tuesday and continue through Oct. 15 because of paving operations on the two-lane segment.

The temporary access closures are intermittent, and will remain in effect until Sept. 10. The accesses will open and close frequently.

The 12-mile resurfacing project from Russell to one-half mile north of Highway 19 in Marshall began May 3. The project is planned to reduce maintenance costs, improve pavement strength and provide a safer, smoother ride for motorists.

Project information and a detour map are available at: http://www.dot.state.mn.us
