Highway 34 almost done

Just as the region celebrated the opening of Main Avenue, in downtown Park Rapids, folks may want to dance down the center line of Highway 34.

Thursday it will open after four years of construction.

"Don't you have any other projects we can pave here?" asked Central Specialties, Inc., superintendent Allan Minnerath when asked if he would miss the area.

The St. Cloud general contractor has paved most of the recent projects around the city, including Highway 34 and Highway 71 to Menahga.

Next week the rumble strip details will be put on 34 and the striping will be completed. The detour will be removed by Thursday.
