Akeley's water main reconstruction project began this week, with detours sending vehicles - including semis - through the city neighborhoods.


Three blocks of Highway 34 - from Pleasant to Hulet - are now blocked from traffic, which is raising business owners' concerns.

The detour for the water main project is expected to span four to six weeks, which will be followed by Highway 34 road construction.
