Road work to begin on Hwy. 107 in Braham

Motorists will encounter a road closure and detour on Highway 107 in Kanabec and Pine counties from Braham to just west of Brook Park as a result of a resurfacing project that began May 16. The project also includes shoulder and culvert work.

Culvert work will require a 21-day detour on Hwy. 107 from Grasston to Hwy. 23. Motorists will follow a signed detour west on Kanabec Co. Rd. 17 to Kanabec Co. Rd. 5 and north back to Hwy. 23. A copy of the detour map can be found at

Hardrives, Inc. of Rogers, Minn., is the prime contractor for the $3.6 million project that will improve mobility, safety and access. Westwood Professional Services of Brainerd, Minn., will provide project contract administration and oversight.

The project is scheduled to be completed by late July, weather permitting.
