Motorists on Highway 59 between Detroit Lakes and the Buffalo River north of Callaway will encounter intermittent lane and shoulder closures when a resurfacing project begins Tuesday, May 27, weather permitting.

The project also includes several culvert replacements and pedestrian accessibility improvements within the city of Callaway. Crews will begin by replacing culverts and making the pedestrian accessibility improvements. During this phase of the project, traffic impacts will be limited to occasional lane and shoulder closures. Flaggers may be required at times, but delays will be minimal.

Later phases of the project will require a detour. Additional information on the detour and the resurfacing portion of the project will be released later.

Central Specialties, Inc. of Alexandria is the prime contractor for the $4.8 million project. Work is expected to be complete by late July.

When the project is complete, motorists will notice a smoother, safer ride along 14 miles of Highway 59.
