STARBUCK — The resurfacing and reconstruction project on Highways 28, 29 and 114 will cause new road closures and detours in Starbuck. The closures and detours vary depending on current construction stage.
According to a news release from the Minnesota Department of Transportation, workers will finish the first stage of construction beginning July 2 and new detours and closures will be put in place for the next stage. Highway 29 south from First Street to Sixth Street will open to traffic, and traffic will be rerouted to Wollan Street and Sixth Street.
Stage two of construction begins July 6, which means that the main intersection of Highway 28, 29 and 114 will close, up to Eighth Street on Highway 114.
According to the release, northbound and southbound traffic on Highway 114 and 29 will reroute to Sixth Street, Abercrombie Street and East Eighth Street. Eastbound and westbound traffic on Highway 28 will detour to Wollan Street, Sixth Street and Abercrombie Street. There will be work on Highway 28 later in stage two, so motorists will detour on John Street instead of Wollan Street.
Stage three will take place on Highway 29 east of the main intersection to Teigen Street, detouring to Pope County Road 24 and Highway 114. It will start in August after stage two is complete.
