Motorists on Highway 75 and Highway 212 near Dawson and Montevideo will encounter delays and detours beginning Monday, April 30, as crews begin a road resurfacing project.
Highway 75 traffic will detour on Lac Qui Parle County Road 2, Lac Qui Parle County Road 23, Lac Qui Parle County Road 25 and State Highway 40.
Highway 212 traffic near Dawson will detour on Lac Qui Parle County Road 7, Highway 40 and Lac Qui Parle 25.
Highway 212 traffic near Montevideo will detour on Highway 275, Lac Qui Parle County Road 2 and Yellow Medicine County Road 5.
The detours will allow crews to resurface deteriorated segments of Highway 212 and Highway 75 more quickly. Crews will remove the detours in September, weather permitting.
Motorists will experience a smoother and safer road surface when the project is complete.
