MnDOT will reconstruct 11 miles of Highway 210 road surface, replace/repair pipes and improve access on Highway 210 from the end of the four-lane in Brainerd to Ironton. Detour begins July 8, 2019. Sign up for email updates.
Prep work June 17-28
Crews will install a temporary mini roundabout with in the existing east Hwy 210/6 intersection in Deerwood, and extend the Hwy 18 bypass lane at the Hwy 6 intersection west of Garrison. The work is in preparation for the upcoming July 8 detour. Motorists will encounter lane closures/shifts, flaggers and heavy moving equipment in these two areas. Once the temporary roundabout is installed, it will be operational through October.

Plan for temporary mini roundabout in Deerwood
To improve traffic flow and ease congestion on the detour, MnDOT will install a:
Temporary mini roundabout at the east intersection of Hwy 6 and Hwy 210, just north of the railroad tracks, in Deerwood. Watch for trains, and stay off railroad tracks. When a train occurs, traffic on both Hwy 6 and Hwy 210 will come to a complete stop and wait for the train to clear.
Temporary traffic signal at the "T" intersection of Hwy 25/Mill Ave and the westbound Hwy 210 access connection to Hwy 25 in Brainerd.
Hwy 18 bypass lane at the Hwy 6 intersection near Bay Lake.
Crow Wing County landfill, all businesses and residences will be maintained and open, but expect some changes and gravel surfaces. The road will be temporarily impassable at some locations to complete underground work, seek nearest alternative route. Work area map for alternate locations, PDF
Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport
Access will always be open to the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport from Hwy 210 Brainerd. Do give yourself extra time.
Half-way point Crow Wing County Landfill
