Traffic snarled on Highway 34 as milling work begins

Traffic is backed up east of Park Rapids on Highway 34. Motorists may want to go north on County Road 4, then turn east on County 81 to avoid the backup. (Sarah Smith / Enterprise

Motorists can expect a five to ten minute delay on Highway 34 east of Park Rapids starting today.

Crews from Central Specialties, Inc., have begun milling off the asphalt pavement and grinding it during traffic.

Traffic Monday was inching along as flaggers and a pace car were used to keep it moving.

Crews are hoping to get caught up on work delayed last week when telecommunications companies did not get their lines and cables moved before the milling work was to begin last week.

Stay tuned to the Enterprise for the latest developments on the $7 million project.
