County Road 28 to close temporarily on Wednesday
Alexandria Minnesota 225 7th Ave E
P.O. Box 549

Douglas County Public Works will be replacing a failed culvert on County

Road 28 just south of Robin Lane. The road closure is scheduled for Wednesday, October 16,

weather permitting.

It is anticipated the duration of the road closure will be one day.

Since the closure is only anticipated to last one day, a detour route will not be signed. Advanced

warning signs will be installed to inform motorists of the closure. Access to all businesses and

homes will be maintained during the project from one end of CR 28 or the other. Alternate routes

include County Roads 4 and 21, and Hiebel Road.
