By Brenda Erdahl: Construction began Monday morning, July 2, on a modern miniroundabout at the intersection of Division Street East, Elm Ave., CSAH 8 South and CSAH 57 in Maple Lake. Work began around 7 a.m., closing access to the area until the anticipated finish date of Monday, August 6. The contract also includes storm sewer installation work along the ditch on the west side of CSAH 8 South. A posted detour route will be in place to direct traffic around the work zone. A separate truck detour route will be designated so that truck traffic does not use the 1st Street East detour route. The construction improvements will consist of the construction of a modern, mini-roundabout to improve safety and traffic flow through the intersection. Landwehr Construction Inc. of Saint Cloud is the prime contractor that will be doing the work. The contractor has indicated that they plan on working six days a week, Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
