College Drive closure

Brothers Construction Company of Brainerd has informed the City of Brainerd
that construction on College Drive is
progressing according to schedule. The project includes the shifting of traffic
from College Drive to Mississippi Parkway in the area of the Central Lakes
College between the intersections of Mississippi Parkway and SW Fourth
Street. College Drive will be closed between these intersections but local access
will be maintained to Southwest Eighth Street. Also note that
parking on Mississippi Parkway be not be allowed until traffic is restored to
College Drive. The Closure will begin at 7AM on Monday, June 4th and will go into July. 

 This closure will allow construction on
this portion of College Drive to be completed more quickly this Summer.
Improvements in this area will include the installation of two of the three
roundabouts, along with storm sewer, water and sewer connections, sidewalks,
retaining wall, new curb & gutter, and blacktop paving.
Included in
the change in traffic flow will also be a shift of motorists to the new paving
near the Mississippi River Bridge. Motorists will be moved to the south side of
College Drive so that work can be completed on the north half of the roadway
and bridge.
Vehicles and
pedestrians travelling in the College Drive Improvement area are asked to slow
down and drive or use the roadway with caution. The City of Brainerd and
Anderson Brothers Construction Company want to thank local area businesses and
the public for their patience during this construction process. Additional

Inspector, at 320-420-1255.
