A major highway construction project in Detroit Lakes is 'over the hump' but will still delay traffic heading to and from WE Fest Aug. 6-8.

Officials hope to have the frontage road open for WE Fest, taking some pressure off a new overpass being built in the same area on Highway 59. Photo by Brian Basham.
