Media Release from Cook County Highway Department - September 11, 2018

Old Highway 61 (CSAH 17) in Grand Portage, is closed from Highway 61 to Mineral Center Road this week as Northland Constructors rebuilds CSAH 17.  Two crews will continue excavating the roadbed and replacing culverts along Old Hwy. 61. This road closure is expected to last a couple of weeks.

Drivers in that area are asked to take an alternate route via Mineral Center Road and obey all signage.  Your patience is appreciated as we work to make these important infrastructure improvements.
