Highway 108 in Ottertail Railroad Crossing Detour

Starting Monday, July 6, motorists will encounter a temporary detour of Highway 108 in Ottertail, as railroad crews complete repairs at the crossing. Traffic will be rerouted to Highway 78, County Road 54 and County Road 127. The work is expected to take approximately two days to complete, weather permitting. Local traffic will be able to access Highway 108 during this work, but the roadway will be closed and impassable at the railroad crossing. Thru-traffic must follow the detour route.

Hwy 210 West of Fergus Falls: Transfer Station is OPEN during construction

Concrete resurfacing begins on Monday, June 15 in the area just west of Interstate 94 to Airport Drive. The westbound lanes will be poured first, and will take approximately one full week to cure. For those with a destination on County Road 116, follow the detour to County Road 88, then take County Road 21 south to County Road 116. If your destination is in Foxhome, you can access Highway 210 from the west.

Highway 210 west of Fergus Falls will close until October. Crews will begin a reconstruction project from west of Interstate 94 to just east of the Otter Tail/Wilkin county line. Traffic will be detoured to County Road 19 N, County Road 16/10, County Road 88 and I-94.

For this project, Highway 210 will be reconstructed and resurfaced with concrete. In addition, crews will complete shoulder widening on the west end of the project, add a truck inspection lane, turn lanes and bypass lanes at various intersections, and address blowing and drifting snow concerns by installing snow fences and ditching.

During construction, access to businesses and residences along the work zone will be maintained. Local traffic should watch for directional signs, which may change daily depending on where crews are working. Thru-traffic must use the detour route. More information here
