You’ll encounter traffic slowdowns and flagging in both directions of Hwy 8 near Deer Garden Ln. in Chisago City as crews are paving the road today through Sat, May 21, weather permitting. Crews expect to complete work by 4 p.m. each day.
Please pay attention and watch for construction crews in and near the work zone. Allow more time to reach your destination.
Workers are constructing a dedicated left turn lane, reconstructing shoulders, resurfacing existing pavement, installing intersection lighting, adding guardrail and updating drainage.
The work is expected to reduce crashes and congestion, improve drainage, enhance safety and traffic flow.
Construction is being done mostly under traffic and should be completed later this summer 2021.
