GLENWOOD โ€” On Wednesday, June 22, Highway 29 will close south of the Highway 55 intersection near Glenwood. Crews will begin construction on the southern portion of the overpass bridge, as well as the roundabout at 160th Street.

As a reminder, Highway 29 is also closed north of the Highway 55 intersection. With the additional closure south of Highway 55, traffic will be detoured to County Road 28, Highway 55 and Highway 28 to and from Glenwood. The extended detour will remain in place through October.

For those traveling to/from Starbuck, Highway 114 is being utilized as part of the detour route.

Highway 55 will remain open as part of the detour, and traffic will switch to the new alignment of Highway 55 later next week. Motorists may encounter minor delays when that change occurs.

Business and residential access within the work zone is being maintained at all times, but entrance locations may change. The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
