Highway 5 Set To Open Monday 24 Oct 13

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says that Highway 5 from Arlington to Green Isle will open to traffic this coming Monday, weather permitting. Crews will be working on striping and finishing work through the weekend. Officials say that motorists can expect a smoother and safer ride when the nearly $5-million project is complete.  The pavement replacement project included replacing the culvert at the south edge of Green Isle and relocating it with a new channel, and a mill and overlay in Green Isle. Knife River Corporation of Sauk Rapids is the contractor on the project.
