(Crosby, MN) — The Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin work in the $6.5 million improvement project on highway 210 in Crosby and Ironton starting Monday, April 19th.

MnDOT crews will be working in east Crosby and reconstruct Highway 210/Main Street (Highway 6) under traffic from Cross Avenue to east of Third Avenue E, at Cuyuna Regional Medical Center.

Those traveling through the area until May can expect narrow and shifting lanes on Highway 210 with periodic stops and closures while flaggers direct traffic. Emergency access will remain on to the CRMC, sidewalk closures, access to businesses and residences will be open with changes and alternate access likely, and Highway 210 truck detour will be moved to Crow Wing County road 12 between Brainerd/Riverton and Deerwood will be part of the adjustments during the construction period.

The Highway 210 project will reconstruct the road, sidewalks, and side street connections between Second Street SW and east of Third Avenue NE in Crosby; resurface the road, update sidewalks and make any other necessary repairs from Second Street SW in Crosby to west of Sixth Avenue SW in Ironton.

When finished in September, the project will provide a smoother road surface, improve drainage, and update pedestrian accessibility through Crosby and Ironton. Up-to-date project information on the Highway 210 Crosby-Ironton project can be found on the MnDOT’s website.
