BROWERVILLE — Highway 71 is closed to all traffic on the north end of Browerville between 11th Street and 12th Street to replace the double box bridge over Harris Creek.

Highway 71 remains detoured to through traffic between Clarissa and Browerville until early August, the Minnesota Department of Transportation reported.

Highway 71 is accessible to locals on the south end of Browerville. The Drayer Creek bridge between Front and First streets is installed.

Through traffic detours are along Todd County Road 11 north of Clarissa to Todd County Road 14/W Miltona Road, back to Highway 71 south of Browerville.

Highway 71 remains open to those who live, work or visit areas within the detoured area; however, for the safety of Browerville residents, through traffic must use the detour and refrain from use of local roads.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
