DETROIT LAKES (KDLM) – The detour to Becker County Road 17 on Highway 59 south of Detroit Lakes has been removed and that portion of the roadway has been reopened.

The detour was part of a resurfacing project on Highway 59 from Willow Street in Detroit Lakes to just south of the Otter Tail County Line.

Motorists will continue to encounter daily lane closures on Highway 59 as crews complete work under traffic for all four stages of the project. A pilot car and flaggers will control traffic in the areas where crews are working. Motorists are urged to slow down in work zones, eliminate distractions and obey traffic control.

Businesses, residents and motorists can view the detour map and keep up to date with the schedule on the project website mndot.gov/d4/projects/hwy59dl/.

The project is scheduled to be completed by mid-October.
