Intersection open to traffic during one-day project
Tuesday will be the last day for Forest Lake’s downtown roundabout as we know it. MnDOT will re-stripe the two-lane intersection at Highway 61 and Broadway Avenue into a one-lane circle this Wednesday, Aug. 14.
Work will begin at 5 a.m. and is expected to be finished by 6 p.m. the same day. The intersection will remain open during the work. Motorists should plan to slow down and drive with caution through the work zone.
The single-lane roundabout is expected to be easier to use and to decrease crashes at the intersection.
