The U.S. Hwy. 71 project in Park Rapids final phase is under way, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT).

Crews are currently installing the storm sewer in the roundabout on Hwy. 71 at the intersection with County Roads 15 and 53.

Once storm sewer and grading are complete, crews will then move to the next step of graveling, followed by concrete, according to a news release.

The project remains on schedule, expecting to be complete by the end of October.
