MnDOT plans to resurface the 15 mile stretch of Highway 200 between Highway 371 and Highway 84. The project includes shoulder widening and the replacement of two box culverts at  Bag Creek and Cedar Creek. Construction is scheduled to take place in 2021.

Highway 200 will be closed to all traffic for a two to three week period during construction to replace the box culverts. Details on the project, including detour information will be provided at the virtual events on October 14.

To prevent further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT is not hosting any in-person public meetings at this time. The virtual meeting will provide participants an opportunity to meet with MnDOT staff and ask questions. MnDOT encourages participation by all as we believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide.
