Highway 23 resurfacing project continues; County Road 39 junction temporarily closed

The Minnesota Department of Transportation has temporarily closed the junction of Highway 23 and Yellow Medicine County Road 39.
Crews will be paving from just south of County Road 39 to the Highway 23 bridge south of Granite Falls. The intersection will reopen when paving operations are complete. The junction of Highway 23 and Highway 67 remains open.
