Motorists traveling on Highway 4 north of Sleepy Eye will encounter a detour beginning Monday, July 9th.

The installation of a single–lane roundabout at the intersection of Highway 4 and County Road 29 aims to improve safety at the intersection.

The intersection is known as a sustained crash location with fatalities occurring both in 2014 and 2015.

The Highway 4 project north of Sleepy Eye is one of three construction projects in the Sleepy Eye area for 2018.
