Drivers will encounter lane closures in both directions on Highway 29 in Alexandria starting Monday, Sept. 16.

Expect delays on Highway 29 at the intersection Third Avenue and Broadway, as the turn lanes onto southbound Broadway and Third Avenue E will be impacted, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The lane closures are needed, said MnDOT, while contractor crews perform underground work, which is expected to be completed by Friday, Sept. 20, weather permitting.

Drivers should slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
