Road Maintenance Updates: Please keep in mind, weather is a factor in road maintenance work and delays in the schedule may occur. Watch for flaggers and please slow down. Crews are working Monday through Saturday.
Attention: Please do not store, sell or place items in the County right of way. This impedes future snow removal and comprises the safety of drivers. Thank you for your cooperation.
Mowing along roadways will continue. Please slow down and look for the 8 tractors that will be out next week.
Paver Patching on Highways #58, #19, and #56. Weather delays can slow the work. Please slow down and watch for flaggers. Please call the highway department to report any wind fallen trees in the County Highway right of way.

CSHA 46-The resurfacing of highway #46 from #71 to the county line begins Sept. 23. Look for crews putting up signs this week. The other half of this project will begin in the spring.
CSAH 1 – Rain has delayed the Highway #1 project. Gravel is being put down and will continue when the surface dries out. A layer of pavement is planned to be applied this year-don’t worry. The road is closed. Unless you live on this road DO NOT drive on the road bed. Please use the detour. The surface is currently not drivable. Use the detour on CSAH 18 to CSAH 35 and back to CSAH 1. The new road will have widened shoulders from 2 feet to 8 feet and hills will be cut down and sight lines improved. The road will have one layer of paving this year and the final layer next summer. Expect the detour through October 2019. There will be a drivable base for residents only. Highway safety is a priority in Otter Tail County and always is considered when planning and improving roads. Updates will be provided throughout the project.
