Highway 27 east of Little Falls scheduled to close Sept 19
BAXTER, Minn. – Motorists on Highway 27 between Little Falls and Pierz may encounter delays as the road closes at Rice Creek, five miles east of Highway 10 in Little Falls, beginning Monday, Sept. 19.
A signed detour will direct motorists along County Road 43/Hawthorn Road and County Road 45/Jewel Road.
All lanes of Highway 27 east of Little Falls will open in early November.
The closure is needed while crews replace the Highway 27 bridge spanning Rice Creek. When complete, the project will result in a safer roadway with wider shoulders, and replace an aging bridge with a new, lower maintenance box culvert bridge.
