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.

November 2-10

Paver Patching: Will wrap up this week.

Miscellaneous: We will be raising the road on #6 by Nelson Lake with gravel and this patch will remain gravel all winter. Watch for the “Gravel Surface Ahead” signs. We will be fully dressing our trucks for winter by putting on wings, plows and sanders.

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.

Road Construction 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.

Highway #1 begins to get paved

CSAH 46-The resurfacing of highway #46 has been postponed and work will begin in the spring on the entire project instead of in two phases.

CSAH 1 – Paving has begun. The plant is set up on Highway 10 east of  Elizabeth. Please watch for trucks on the highways. Rain has delayed the Highway #1 project. Some low lying areas of the road may remain gravel over the winter to give it time to compact. The road is still closed. Unless you live on this road DO NOT  drive on the road bed. Please use the detour. 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 should have one layer of paving this year and the final layer next summer. 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. Thank you local residents for your patience.

Tower Road Project: The resurfacing will most likely be delayed until spring.
