Motorists on Highway 371 between Baxter and Pine River will encounter lane closures, work crews and possible delays as segments of the road are intermittently reduced to a single lane beginning Monday, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.

The lane closures will occur from sunrise to sunset through April 30 while crews seal cracks in the pavement. The four-lane segments of Highway 371 between Highway 210 in Baxter and County Road 18 in Nisswa will be reduced to a single lane in each direction while crews complete their work.

The two-lane segments of Highway 371 between Jenkins and Pine River will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers and a pilot car controlling one-way, alternating traffic through the daily work zones.

Motorists approaching the daily work zones between Jenkins and Pine River should slow down and be prepared to stop, obey the flaggers, then follow the pilot car through the work zone. Motorists entering a work zone from driveways or roads that intersect Highway 371 must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow it through the daily work zone.

When complete, the project will help extend the life of the pavement along 22 miles of Highway 371.
