Drivers in the Mille Lacs Lake area will want to know about a culvert-replacement project that is underway, resulting in single lane traffic, flaggers, and delays.

The Major drainage project occurs on Highway 18 between Highway 47 in Mille Lacs County and Highway 61 in Pine County.  The construction project is designed to extend the life of Highway 18.

Estimated timeline for completion is near the end of September.
