The detour for the Highway 44 reconstruction project in Spring Grove is back in place, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists will once again be detoured to Highway 76, Highway 16 and Highway 43.

The detour had been temporarily lifted due to the Highway 43 bridge damage that occurred during the June 23 flooding.

Motorists should continue to follow the posted detour on Highway 43 through July as crews finish repair work near Choice.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
